Pause On The Play is where Erica Courdae has real conversations about everything in and around Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity. Here she talks candidly to open minds and hearts to other ways of thinking, feeling, and being to bridge gaps and foster empathy. Giving life to concerns and experiences rarely addressed openly and honestly by women and particularly women of color through dialogue. For people to think and talk openly about those thoughts and how they affect our lives to fuel actions. Examine your beliefs. Question your predisposed notions. But most of all, be willing to consider realities you are unfamiliar with and understand they are real. I’ve always been willing to talk about just about anything, now I’m here to challenge you from a place of wanting to go beyond the surface. Challenge assumptions and shatter expectations with words. My name is Erica, and it’s time to talk my dear.
