I’ve spoken at events for these amazing organizations:

"LáDeia is a strategic thinker, a compassionate activist, and one of the kindest spirits I have had the pleasure of working with.
I have partnered with LáDeia to serve as a panelist for community conversations addressing HIV and women’s wellness.
She has a great way of identifying the nuanced perspective missing from our cultural conversations and digging deep to find the perfect words to fill it. She brings a dynamic energy to the table right from the start, every single time.
Furthermore, LáDeia’s positive attitude makes our work together enjoyable. She always encourages our team and provides support as we develop every session. I’ve witnessed what LáDeia can do firsthand, and I recommend her without hesitation!”

"LáDeia was one of the most requested guest speakers in my Grow with Google workshops.
I was looking for a speaker who could help people transform their actions. LáDeia is a natural motivator and her speaking style is engaging. She shared with my audience how they can audit, grow and protect their energy in order to be more effective at work or home! I’ve had several people tell me that LáDeia’s talk motivated them to take care of themselves better. She is one of the highest-rated speakers that I’ve introduced to my audience on the Grow with Google platform. I can’t wait to have LáDeia as a guest speaker again!”

"Thought provoking, unadulterated truth, and candid are all words to describe the message delivery of LáDeia.
The women in attendance left Between Us Girls more knowledgeable not only about HIV prevention but armed with strategies to navigate their personal lives to decrease the risk of HIV transmission. LáDeia was able to meet the women where they were in a non- assuming and nonjudgmental way that allowed the information being shared to be more palatable. She is definitely a speaker to have if you desire a nontraditional approach of connecting people and public health.”
