Co-Founder of ”Liberation Labs,” focused on sustainable DEI strategy, published in the Harvard Business Review - Viva Asmelash
This week on the show, Dr. Summer Watson welcomes Viva Asmelash. Viva is a consultant and speaker, who helps mission-driven teams engage in more equitable, meaningful, and joyful work. She specializes in inclusive learning experiences, employee well-being, and Culturally-Aware Feedback Training™. She is also the co-founder of Liberation Labs and has been published in the Harvard Business Review.
As a first-generation Eritrean-American, Viva leverages a unique, life-long perspective on race, gender, culture, belonging, privilege, and access to education. With this lens and her breadth of industry experience, she takes deep care in working with select clients to share insights and tactics to deepen their people + inclusion ethos and efforts—all in hopes of planting seeds for collective liberation and joy.
She brings 15 years of experience in leadership training + development, values-driven branding, and employee engagement. Viva frequently designs and delivers group and individual inclusive leadership coaching programs for executives, delivers keynote speeches and panel discussions, and crafts custom education experiences for a wide range of organizations.
As the co-founder of Liberation Labs, Viva is laser-focused on helping mission-driven teams engage in more equitable, meaningful, and joyful work. Liberation Labs is not your typical consulting partner. Rather, they work to push past siloed DEI conversations to show select clients why and how to weave principles of equity and inclusion into the fabric of their organization in tangible ways.
