Educating yourself as a human and entrepreneur so you can build a culturally & racially diverse, inclusive and equitable online business is important, essential, and lifelong work.
I know if you’re reading this, you want to be a part of the conversation and change. I also know you might not know exactly how to go about doing that or you might be scared of messing up, getting it wrong, being called out, or seeming performative.
That’s why I’m honored to share this week’s conversation with special guest, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coach & Consultant, Annie Gichuru.
Annie Gichuru is the founder of Uplifting Studios, a platform dedicated to supporting online business owners to build culturally & racially diverse, inclusive and equitable businesses.
She’s deeply passionate about representation through a racial justice lens and is an internationally certified coach supporting migrant women of colour and the founder of Represented, an online course to help you build a culturally & racially diverse, inclusive and equitable online business.
Annie joined us this week to share ONE powerful question to help you identify your blind spots so you can lean in, be a part of the change, and create more racial equity in your business.
In Episode 24 Annie and I talk about:
An important question to ask and unpack if you’re a business owner and part of a dominant culture to help you identify opportunities to create more racial inclusivity.
Annie’s powerful statement to address the fear of “getting it wrong” or being called out when you’re doing anti-racism work.
The first step you can take to build a culturally & racially diverse business.
Where you can start to have conversations, create influence, and enact change.
The importance of educating yourself and the actionable steps you can take today to start doing the work. (Learn more and enroll in Annie’s program for business owners, Represented here. Doors are now OPEN.)
What you need to understand before giving scholarships and opportunities for People of Color.
What it means to be “performative” or to “center yourself” and how you can be an authentic ally. (Download Annie’s Free Guide 10 Steps to Becoming a Genuine Ally & Advocate for People of Colour here)
