A co-author of 2023’s Racial Justice at Work: Practical Solutions for Systemic Change and the forthcoming second edition of We Can’t Talk About That at Work!, Mareisha is a featured speaker and an advocate for change. She is the face of the next generation of DEIJ thought leaders and has been a force for advancing organizational transformation and actualizing equitable and just workplaces.

Mareisha has received several recognitions, including Who’s Who in Black Charlotte, Charlotte Business Journal’s Power 100 and Profiles in Diversity Journal’s Women Worth Watching, all in 2023. Mareisha was also named to Diversity MBA’s Top 100 Under 50 Executive and Emerging Leaders in 2021 and Diversity Woman Media’s The Power 100 List in 2021.
