REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Dr. Akilah Cadet Biography

Dr. Akilah Cadet is the Founder and CEO of Change Cadet consulting firm, which offers a broad array of anti-racism and diversity services including strategic planning, crisis rebuilding, advising, executive coaching and facilitation. Cadet (her last name) is a French term that means soldier. As it's often an uphill battle for BIPOC, women, and underrepresented communities to achieve success and equity in the workplace, Change Cadet prepares soldiers of change to overcome these continuous battles so individuals and companies can thrive.

As a young Black woman, Dr. Cadet has experienced judgment, "isms," and numerous barriers in the workplace over the course of her career. One day, she wondered how she could help to change that, and Change Cadet was born. Cadet, her last name, is a French term that means "soldier." Change Cadet prepares individuals and companies to be soldiers of change in the workforce so there can be more women and people of color at the top. She wants everyone to feel empowered in their career. To accomplish this, she provides people and companies with services that support anti-racism, diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging (DEIB), including executive coaching, strategic planning, facilitation, and crisis recovery. She advises tech startups from concept to staffing, facilitates strategic workshops, coaches leaders, and speaks at various engagements.

Dr. Cadet knows the only way to achieve the goal of true inclusiveness in the workplace is to work with, coach, and speak to as many companies and individuals as possible. She wants Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) to know they have something special to contribute to their workplaces, and for companies to truly recognize the value of their employees.

Dr. Cadet has over 15 years of experience in management and building successful projects, teams, and leaders in the public and private sectors. She has worked on federal, state, and privately funded multimillion-dollar projects ranging from public health/healthcare to education. She has spent an extensive part of her career designing training, coaching executives, and informing systematic change to improve the workforce experience for large organizations.

Dr. Cadet holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Education in Community Based Public Health, a Master of Public Health, and a Doctorate of Health Sciences in Leadership and Organizational Behavior.

Dr. Cadet lives in Oakland, California, and is passionate about Beyoncé and great shoes.

Speaking Topics
  • Women Empowerment/Women of Color

    Dr. Cadet uses her personal story and insight to share how to be a successful woman or woman of color (WOC) in the workplace. She discusses her experience being fired, the importance of knowing your perceived barriers, building your advisory squad, the power of Beyoncé, and when to move on if you’re not valued. Designed as a keynote or interactive Zoom workshop session.

  • Harmony Not Balance & Reconnecting to Joy

    Many work environments extend into personal life. As a result, people will work forever, whenever. With a pandemic and injustices towards Black people it is important to find ways to reconnect back to joy. This workshop discusses the difference between balance (nothing is ever an exact portion) and harmony (going with the flow and less feelings of failure). Tools and exercises will be provided to rethink personal and professional life.

  • Do the Work: Becoming an Accomplice

    Understanding your privilege and identifying as an ally are a start, yet not enough. We have to do the work. This workshop covers the next steps in anti-racist work, past allyship onto becoming an accomplice. We’ll examine the differences between these two concepts, learn to recognize performative allyship, and share insight about what it means and how to start the necessary work of becoming an accomplice. Segments of this virtual, interactive workshop will use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community.

  • Power and Privilege

    White privilege is a thing, but not the only thing. We all have power and privilege. This workshop examines the many forms of power and privilege in the workplace, given our ethnicity, social economic status, education level, and more. We will explore how to use our power and privilege to better ourselves, to support others, and journey towards becoming an accomplice. This interactive workshop will use Zoom polls and breakout groups.
