Jodi-Ann Burey is a speaker, writer and disrupter in the pursuit of equity for all.

“Jodi-Ann is a rare, magical kind of public speaker who does two things at the same time: she introduces concepts, ideas, and frameworks in an engaging, relatable, and often hilarious way, while at the same time making her audience feel smart, special and included while they’re learning new things.

She has a warm generous presence as a speaker, and she’s eminently trustworthy. She doesn’t sugarcoat things and she grounds her conculsions in lived experience and hard data.”

“Jodi-Ann is a brilliant combination of public intellectual, transformational thought leader and the workplace bestie you look at across the boardroom to see if she saw that microagression too.

Turns out, she not only saw it but she’s going to call it out and write an essay on it later.

Jodi-Ann is the voice needed to hold institutions accountable to their DEI mission statements. At the same time, she is uplifting and inspiring marginalized women and reimagining authenticity at work.


Keynote Speaker + Moderator

From talks with luminaries such as Senator Kamala Harris and Stacey Abrams to powerhouse community and business leaders across the country, I have had the honor of curating and facilitating conversations that inspire and empower others to create the change they want to see in their lives and communities. This is where disruption happens: not in just sharing ideas, but enlivening our agency to understand the power we already have to address the inequities we see and experience all around us.

Business + Culture Writer

Through creative non-fiction, I write to inform and inspire others to explore new perspectives to help them better understand themselves, their communities and the larger society we all have the capacity to change. I am currently writing my first book about women of color and racial equity in healthcare.

Diversity + Inclusion Consultant

Leveraging a unique cross-sectoral experiences, my work is grounded in an urgency for strengthened accountability that can drive strutural and systemic social change. Through that lens, I strive to build workplace cultures centered on shared values and operationalizing diversity, equity and inclusion core principles.

Racial Equity + Healthcare Entrepreneur

Developing solutions to achieve racial equity in the healthcare system is urgent now more than ever. Across income levels, people of color – black women in particular, are disproportionately disadvantaged when it comes to treatment and care. As a cancer survivor with a Masters in Public Health, I know intimately the personal and systemic factors at play, which puts me in a unique position to create solutions that can have a real impact on people’s everyday lives. My latest project is a podcast about people of color whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Sign up here to learn more. My upcoming project (soon to be announced) focuses on supporting patients of color, and their healthcare providers towards leveling racial health disparities.
