It’s not so much a policy problem. We’re finally getting those right. Our problem exists in the milliseconds it takes to dismiss a woman’s voice. That’s the next frontier.

—Dalisia Coppersmith

Speaking Style

When Dalisia takes the stage, your audience will see and hear a woman who took the long road from “alpha female on fire” to relaxed, loving, and intentional leader. She infuses humor, inarguable facts, and heart-stopping stories of struggle and triumph into each talk in order to break down ingrained mental models, denial, and emotional barriers.

Her diversity talks are “no blame/no shame” and leave everyone feeling understood and respected, regardless of their gender, age, race, sexual orientation, or past mistakes. All are welcome and invited to be part of positive change. Let Dalisia be a catalyst for the mindset shifts and culture that you want to build.

“The tools I learned were invaluable. I learned how to have difficult open/honest conversations without defensiveness.”

—Audience Member

“This should be mandatory for everyone, especially supervisors. Best EEO program I’ve been to in a very long time.”

—Audience Member

“I never thought I had this kind of impact on the women I work with. I can see it now—because you reminded me of times when I was the “only” in the room. This will change how I show up.”
