International Speaker, Podcaster, and Women Empowerment Advocate Nicole Walker is a determined leader on a mission to empower businesses and inspire Women of Color around the globe.
As a former teen parent, Nicole had to face many hurdles, yet her relentless drive and ambition led her to not only finish high school but to also earn a Master's degree as well as certifications in business analysis, training, instructional development/design, and project management. Equipped with this array of valuable knowledge, Nicole’s main focus is on helping others understand the importance of effective leadership and having a healthy mindset for optimal performance. This is an area she struggled with for many years, so she is adamant about lessening the time others need to understand the concepts she now knows and the strategies she now uses to succeed.
On March 1, 2018, Nicole Walker launched She Leads Podcast: Leadership Empowerment for Women of Color. Nicole uses this platform to showcase leading WOC Entrepreneurs, as a representation for the under-represented and to promote collaboration as opposed to the competition she experienced among many of the women she encountered. She Leads Podcast focuses on topics such as Self-Discovery, Self Leadership, Mindset, Self-Care, Productivity, and Success Strategies.
Since the creation of She Leads Podcast, it has become a highly acclaimed and well-respected platform. Over the last two years, She Leads Podcast has gained a global presence receiving downloads in 80 countries, and counting, around the world. Player FM deemed She Leads Podcast as one of the Best Women of Color Podcasts around in 2019 and 2020. While Feedspot Blog ranked She Leads Podcast number 5 out of the Top 20 Women Leadership Podcasts You Must Follow in 2019 and 2020. She Leads Podcast was also referenced in a research paper focusing on the impacts of empowering podcasts for women of color, presented at the 2019 National Pop-Culture Association in Washington, D.C.
Nicole is a grateful and proud mother of two children: a twenty-year-old daughter who is currently a junior in college at UNO in New Orleans, LA and a 6-year-old son who is a genius ready to take over the world. When Nicole is not working diligently to change the minds of the people she encounters, Nicole enjoys decorating, event planning, scrap-booking, and most importantly, going on adventures with her family and friends.
