NABPAC (National Assn. of Business PACs)

Episode five of our special 5-part election series.  In this episode, we’re examining the topic of diversity and inclusion. What do those words really mean?  How can each one of us help our organizations achieve this goal?  And what benefits will success on this front provide?  Our special guest: Tracy J Edmonds.

The Light – Community Connection Tuesday

As We Celebrate Women’s History Month, Join Us As We Speak To Tracy J Edmonds, An Authentic Leader. Tracy’s J Edmond’s Book: “Wild Hair: A Courageous Woman’s Guide to a Bold and Authentic Career” Tracy J. Edmonds struck out bravely into that uncharted territory in her role as Chief Diversity Officer at a Fortune 500 Company. Once she made the leap and literally let loose her “wild hair,” she never looked back.

Beyond the Crucible

From the outside looking in, Tracy J. Edmonds’ life couldn’t have been sweeter: a high-profile executive job with a Fortune 30 company at which she excelled. But on the inside, where she discovered it really counts, her career had come at a high cost because of a self-imposed crucible: not being her authentic self. So she decided to embrace both her figurative and literal wild hair — trading her corner office for a cubicle and tackling a vision that not only meshed with her gifts and passions but also allowed her to live who she truly was rather than conforming a corporate mold. She’s found her life of significance in coaching other women of color that to be the best versions of themselves, they have to be the real versions of themselves.

BOLD MOVES: The Difference a Year Can Make

My Approach & Philosophy





Today’s leaders have a whole new set of circumstances, beliefs, culture and generations to challenge them.

If they aren’t prepared to meet the new and emerging ways of doing business, they and their companies will be left in the dust of the ever-changing landscape.

That’s where I come in! I bring my years of diversity, business and human relations work to the forefront to help you navigate the new ways and create your own authentic path of leadership.

It’s what I speak about, it’s where I lead, educate, consult and coach from.



I have known Tracy Edmonds professionally and personally over 30 years and during this time I’ve had the opportunity to hear her speak on various topics including HR and inclusion and diversity. Her message is clear, concise and authentic.

Teresa L. Thomas

Retired Manager, Reconciliation Analysis & Reporting

One thing that stands out about Tracy is the authenticity that comes through as she speaks to audiences. She truly models the behavior; you can sense that quality in her as she shares stories from her journey. I recently heard her speak on the topic of: Using Your Authenticity to Create Inclusion. From the moment she introduced herself and throughout her presentation, our audience was drawn in, as Tracy beautifully demonstrated the power of authenticity and courage in business relationships and in life overall. I highly recommend her!

Venice Sherman

Director of Talent Management

I had the pleasure of working with Tracy as Chief Diversity Officer at Anthem. Tracy advanced Anthem’s DEI strategy, and I found her tenacious, experienced, and persuasive in framing out the imperative for change and assuring progress was made in achieving DEI goals. Tracy was a driven executive, a collaborative partner, and an influential presenter with colleagues, the executive leadership team, and the Board of Directors. I’d recommend her strongly as DEI leader, advisor, and consultant.
