In this intimate, coffee chat-like interview series, you'll hear directly from inspiring professionals of color from a variety of industries as they reflect on their most meaningful early career insights. The ECM Podcast encourages us to leave our imposter syndrome and self-doubt behind as we fearlessly pursue our most authentic dreams.
