    #97-Executive Coaching for BIPOC Womxn with Erica Hamilton

    #97-Executive Coaching for BIPOC Womxn with Erica Hamilton

    Erica Hamilton: mother, wife, social justice warrior, leader.  For those of you who missed Erica's previous podcast episode, I'm thrilled to interview her again as she kicks off her newest adventures.  Erica is passionate about social justice and supporting BIPOC womxn who may struggle to thrive in environments that were not created for them.  In this interview, we chat about some big things, including:

    1) Womxn of color and their relationship to money and wealth-building

    2) How to know if an organization is truly down for the cause or simply doing "performative wokeness."

    3) How Erica's new coaching business focuses on supporting womxn of color and how to give them the space to exhale.

    Listen in on this important convo that feels like friends just hanging out and talking about the Important Stuff.

    2) Why a five-minute elevator pitch is actually a massive failure

    3) How to use qualitative research to WIN

    4) How the fear of death will help you to clarify your message

An expert view

I’d worked with Rhea in her previous role at Breakthrough New York and always admired her drive and enthusiasm - both of which shine through in her podcast. She’s always insightful and looks for ways to bring out the best in people - and that comes through in her discussions with guests. She knows the nonprofit world well - the challenges and opportunities that are always around the corner - and so she’s a trusted voice!
