We’re joined in this episode by two amazing guests, Erica Courdae and India Jackson, to unpack the term “charge your worth” and the weight that it can carry for women of color.
Erica and India are also reflecting on the significance of women of color and allies working together and the importance of being an imperfect ally to yourself and others. This episode will change the way you think about values, allyship, cancel culture, and so much more.
As an athlete, photographer, and creative consultant to personal brands, India Jackson spent the first decade of her career watching as talented professionals were forced to adopt identities that were sellable but not authentic. Watching as the market flooded with an intense focus on follower count and crafted personas, she committed to taking a more aligned approach to influence-building.
Erica Courdae is a trusted advisor to entrepreneurs and executive teams committed to shifting focus, power, and resources in order to create more equity in their business and the world. She believes imperfect action is necessary to create meaningful social change and helps public figures engage in the work without fear of judgment.
In 2018, Erica and India co-founded Pause on the Play: a community, podcast, and consultancy committed to guiding individuals in the process of defining their values, diversifying their networks, and disrupting systems of oppression. Combined, they have provided training and consulting applied in businesses ranging from Christian Dior and Paul Mitchell School to Martha Beck Incorporated and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Their voices have been featured on podcasts, workshops, and online communities with a combined reach of over twenty thousand people.
