Malia Lazu’s background in DEI and business leadership makes her a compelling speaker across multiple forums and venues, from keynotes to conferences. An award-winning speaker and lecturer at MIT, who also works with leading organizations on their most urgent talent and culture needs, she also draws on her roots in community organizing to ensure that the voice of people closest to the problem are the ones that are heard. A compelling storyteller who has been on the front lines of struggle and change, Malia is a truth teller–even when it’s hard. Today, she speaks and educates organizations on the need for DEI that goes beyond lip service–and helps build a meaningful and inclusive community.
