Work From the Inside Out Podcast – Creating a More Inclusive Workplace with Julie Kratz
Julie Kratz is the Founder and Chief Engagement Officer of Next Pivot Point. She is a highly-acclaimed TEDx speaker, author, podcast host, and inclusive leadership trainer who led teams and produced results in corporate America. After experiencing many career “pivot points” of her own, Julie started her own business with the goal of helping leaders and their organizations to be more inclusive through allyship. Next Pivot Point works to promote allyship and inclusion in the workplace to make sure that everyone feels seen, heard, and belonging at work.
Julie was raised by her single mother. From a young age, her mother always told her that her purpose in life was to help women. As Julie started her career in the corporate world, those words kept replaying in her mind. After twelve years of the “shenanigans,” as Julie refers to it, she was done with corporate life. No longer could she tolerate the lack of inclusion, lack of belonging, and having to stuff herself inside a box where she did not fit. In her early thirties at the time, Julie kept thinking, “Your purpose is to help women.”
Opening the door for Next Pivot Point, Julie focused on gender equity in the workplace. This was before people were talking about DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion). Julie continues to help people of all backgrounds feel included in the workplace through facilitation, writing books, speaking, and coaching.
