Deepa Purushothaman



As a corporate executive, Deepa Purushothaman was no stranger to a high stress and hectic work life, made stronger by the difficulties of navigating the position as a woman of color. However, after suffering a series of health issues, Deepa decided to put her health and happiness first, and left corporate America.

Now an author, speaker and “inclusion visionary,” Deepa believes that when we do what we’re supposed to be doing in the world and when living our purpose, “the right people and the right thing[s] show up.”
