    Presented By: Amita Mehta

    Amita Mehta spent her life charting her own distinct path, despite overwhelming odds, and she helps others uncover their own unique traits and proactively utilize their "differences" to their advantage. Through vulnerability and candor, Amita shares how she embraced her past as a refugee and built credibility in a male-dominated field of financial services.

    ​In Amita's own life, she faced an inflection point in her career—she could continue hiding who she was as a lesbian or she could lean into her truth. By choosing the latter, Amita became a fully self-actualized person and an authentic leader and someone colleagues sought out as an advisor and mentor.
    She encourages each participant to dig deeper, step into themselves, including the aspects that we typically try to hide, and be the kind of leader who inspires others to be their best. 

    •  Participants will walk away from the session understanding that when we lean into our "misfit" qualities, we increase our emotional intelligence and our ability to be inclusive and effective leaders personally and professionally. 

    About The Speaker:

    Amita inspires people to be authentic doers and unapologetic dreamers. She is a passionate and dynamic business strategist with more than two decades of financial services experience with premier brands including Fulton Bank, JPMorgan Chase, and Prudential Financial. 

    She developed a track record as a trailblazer and a bold and trusted advisor to C-Suite executive management. Her distinct perspectives as a refugee, a lesbian, and a resourceful self-starter intersect with her business acumen, resulting in a relatable and inspirational storyteller who helps individuals discover their passions and embrace their truths.

    She is also the host of Outcast, a weekly show featuring misfits who are bold change makers and rule breakers. Follow her on Instagram at amitamehta11.
