How does being an equity-centered leader sound to you?
In this age there is a lot of talk (an therefore a lot of confusion!) about the relationship between DEI - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Anti-racism, Social Justice, Collective Liberation, how all of these things work together, and how to integrate them into your leadership. That's why it's important to have an experienced pro explain the nuances of what is behind people’s beliefs, their behaviors, and how social structures develop.
To enlighten us around all things equity-centered, we welcome returning guest Trudi Lebron. Trudi is a coach and consultant for people who want to step into their leadership potential by prioritizing equity. In this episode, Trudi reveals how leaders of all kinds can learn and use real antiracism practices as more than just a DEI statement. We got into how businesses actually treat people while often marketing diversity as a branding move and how organizations need to put real work into assessing and confronting how they uphold oppressive systems.
We also discuss how antiracism is a collection of behaviors, policies, and self-reflection. It’s hard, it’s healing, and it’s the only way to move forward.

About the EMBODIED Podcast with Elizabeth DiAlto
Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.
If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love. If you’re feeling it, subscribe to the show, and leave us a review wherever you listen from. You can also keep up with show updates and community discussion on Instagram here.
