In this episode of Support is Sexy, Elayne Fluker invites Jodi-Ann Burey, a speaker, writer, and disruptor in the pursuit of equity for all in the actual system. Jodi-Ann talks about how the actual institutions and structure of power weren’t exactly built thinking in an inclusive and healthy workspace, and specifically how these types of environments trigger the imposter syndrome in black women. She/her tells us what this syndrome is about, how it affects women every day, how to reconcile with it, and yet feel comfortable at your workspace on a daily basis.
Jodi-Ann Burey (she/her) has a mission to disrupt “business as usual” to achieve social change. She is a sought-after speaker and writer who works at the intersections of race, culture, and health equity. Her TED talk, “The Myth of Bringing Your Full Authentic Self to Work,” embodies her disruption of traditional narratives about racism at work. Jodi-Ann is also the creator and host of Black Cancer, a podcast about the lives of people of color through their cancer journeys, which was recently featured on POPSUGAR and NBC – Dallas. Jodi-Ann holds a Master’s in Public Health from the University of Michigan. She prides herself on being a cool auntie, a twist-out queen, health advocate, adventurer, and reluctant dog owner. Jodi-Ann is currently working on her first book.
