Catherine is here today with Verna Myers. Vernā Myers is on a personal mission to disrupt the status quo and she knows how to: she’s lived it!
Vernā rose out of Baltimore’s working class to become a Harvard-trained lawyer, entrepreneur, author and cultural innovator. Her dynamic, laugh-out-loud speeches inspire audiences to go further — to move beyond levelling the playing field to create a new field altogether — and empower people of all backgrounds to contribute at their highest levels.
Vernā asks hard questions because today’s interdependent companies, governments and communities need to figure out how to solve seemingly intractable, systemic problems. With humility born from years of experience in life and in the field, Vernā’s stories spell out the steps needed to embrace difference and create fair and prosperous solutions that help reorganize our world.
Author of the best-selling books Moving Diversity Forward: How to Move from Well-Meaning to Well-Doing, and What If I Say the Wrong Thing? 25 Habits for Culturally Effective People, Vernā has touched over 1,000,000 people through her speeches, appearances and transformative message of power and possibility. Her inspiring TED talk, “How to Overcome Our Biases? Walk Boldly Toward Them,” offers three ways any person can become an active participant in countering bias in ourselves and in others to create a more just world.

A quote from the inspirational woman – “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
People are always complimenting on my photos, and they ask me – who is your photographer, and I tell them that I don’t have a photographer, I have access to the best photographers – that’s the main reason why todays episode is brought to you by Verve Portraits.
