Glodean is a 2x TEDx Speaker and Keynote Speaker who pulls from her mother's influence — her first authentic leader – to create stories about life, leadership, and acceptance that connect with people. She is a master storyteller whose thought-provoking ideas about "difference" force people to re-examine and often shift their perspectives and belief systems. Her approach to everything she does is with honesty, authenticity, and vulnerability and the intent to leave people better than she found them.


With over 20 years of experience as a Lean Six Sigma leader, DEI disrupter, and master educator, Glodean specializes in continuous improvement: of self, in leaders, teams, processes, and organizations. She is a Six Sigma Black Belt with certifications in Laser Coaching, Extreme Leadership, DEI Leadership, DEI Strategies, and Leadership Development.


After 15+ years of leading or participating in DEI initiatives, she realized most of them failed because they weren’t designed to be operationalized into the DNA of the organization with measures and KPIs for continuous improvement. Instead, they unintentionally created shame, blame, and anger. They also missed the opportunity to improve communication, embrace accountability, and inspire self-awareness - the root causes of most failed business initiatives. This led Glodean to develop her groundbreaking Kaizen Your Culture organizational program and Lean into Love keynotes, which integrate Lean Six Sigma and DEI principles and methodologies built upon a L.O.V.E. framework: Listen with the intent to learn, Open-mindedly with Vulnerability and Empathy.

Glodean is also the celebrated author of the award-winning coming-of-age novel Salmon Croquettes. She loves her Tibetan Terrier, Tashi, her weighted blanket, breakfast for dinner, and Self-love Sunday, her favorite day of the week.
