MelindaJoy Mingo

MelindaJoy Mingo has a powerful and inspiring life transformative story that spans from her living in the streets as a homeless person to traveling the world as a widely sought out speaker both nationally and internationally.

She speaks openly and genuinely about her personal `identity reset’ journey of learning to value and love herself beyond her accomplishments. MelindaJoy has a Ph.D. in Global Leadership and Education, is the founder of Significant Life Change Transitions Coaching, is an equity and inclusion specialist, a professor, and is the author of `The Colors of Culture – The Beauty of Diverse Friendships’. She has a mission of helping others to understand their value, worth, and dignity.

Meredith Masse

Meredith Masse spent the first 15+ years of her professional life chasing jobs that her resume said she could do but that, she had an inkling, didn't really... fit. After two dozen years she finally figured out why and now has to help other professional women accelerate toward a work life they'll love. Since then, Meredith has coached professionals -- especially women -- seeking to transform their work lives into powerful experiences that allow them to do what they do best, serving something that's meaningful to them, in places that need to them to be 100% authentic. She is passionate about filling our workplaces with employees, managers, and leaders who are on fire -- who model and demonstrate the kind of world they demand to live in.
