The Creative Impostor ,

The Dynamic Duo of DEI & Business Leadership

I've recently discovered co-hosts Erica and India and I am blown away by how they facilitate conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion and how these principles can be integrated more holistically into your work. So inspired -- and looking forward to learning from the whole Pause on the Play Community. Excellent content and the rapport between these two is so refreshing to listen to.

Love this podcast!

Erica and India go deep on topics and realities I just wasn’t as aware of as I need to be. If you’re looking for some real talk on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and learn how you can foster empathy and bridge gaps in your own life and business, I’d highly recommend this podcast!

Truth bombs

I’m learning so much by listening to these women. (And not just about DEI issues) this is also a podcast about being brave and exercising your courage muscle.
