Testimonials

Tracy’s approach to complex human capital issues in the area of inclusion, her business savvy and honest counsel (including challenging the status quo for the right reasons) allow for the organizations that she works in to obtain the highest possible return on their most valuable investment – their people.
Bradley Soto

Fortune 20 Healthcare Executive

Tracy was the leader I chose to work alongside me guiding a national corporation to achieve D&I expectations. During our time together, I admired Tracy as an expert and thought leader in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Key characteristics that describe her are authentic engagement, passionate commitment, and total dedication and belief in her work as a change agent. Her honest style and approachability position her as a great partner for executives and leaders who are serious about driving change. Tracy’s advice and consultation to me, the board, and leadership made our organization better in every dimension.

Former CEO Anthem, Inc.

I had the pleasure of working with Tracy in her role as Chief Diversity Officer at Anthem. During her tenure, Tracy drove significant progress advancing 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.

Tracy J. Edmonds is remarkable, simply put. In just 6 short weeks, she guided our organization through an extensive process as we began our journey to amplify the power of diversity, equity, and inclusion across the PAC profession and within the communities with which we engage and serve. With Tracy’s strong leadership, incredible expertise and drive to keep us moving, she guided our Board leadership and DEI Task Force to chart the course forward to ensure that NABPAC remains the premiere association empowering a diverse business PAC and political affairs community.  What took her 6 weeks to accomplish would have taken us 6 months! And while she is so good at what she does, she is also genuine and very fun to work with.

My experience with Tracy as an Executive Coach has been phenomenal and career changing. She has supported me through a number of promotions, often opening my eyes to opportunities I had not expected or anticipated. Tracy helped me to create self-awareness and supported me through the challenges of uncovering gaps as well as potential. In each session she would challenge my thinking. She had a gift of creating comfort zones, all the while, pushing me outside of them. GROWTH…that was the goal. Her authenticity allowed me to lower my walls of concerns and hesitation. Tracy allowed me to bring all I had and unload the wins and losses in front of her. Tracy is an active listener who possess a conversational intelligence to support the most seasoned leader. She is positive, enthusiastic, supportive, trusting, focused, goal-oriented, knowledgeable, observant, respectful, patient and a clear communicator. From the broom closet to the boardroom, Tracy can support any/all goals and equip you for the next level. Tracy has my highest recommendation!
