Join other leaders and industry professionals as they discuss their approaches and best practices for hiring talent from various backgrounds. All hiring managers or HR folks who are looking to update the talent acquisition process for greater inclusivity are encouraged to sign up.

CEO and Founder,
Your Work Inspires
A former aspiring lawyer-turned-tech-marketer, Kim began her career working in media litigation and First Amendment law before jumping client-side with a global Fortune 500 media company. While there, she leveraged her legal background into a brand strategy, marketing, and advertising career full-time, leading high-performing cross-functional teams and producing multimillion-dollar media campaigns in highly regulated industries, from tech to financial services. Currently, Kim oversees regional marketing and growth initiatives in Latin America for a worldwide Internet infrastructure company in the broader Washington, DC metro area.
After a decade spent on both sides of the hiring table, Kim founded her negotiations and career coaching firm, Your Work Inspires, with one single mission—to help close the pay gap and wealth gap for women and communities of color, regardless of job title or industry. Kim holds a BA in Psychology and MA in Strategic Communications, and frequently speaks and facilitates workshops on various business and career topics for diverse audiences of all backgrounds at Duke University, American University, and Booz Allen Hamilton, among others.
