RACIAL STORM IN AMERICA
Embracing Diversity and Inclusion As Our Best Path Forward. 

MY STORY
By Mindy Corporon
Co-founder, Workplace Healing LLC.

Reaching the pinnacle of her professional career in Wealth Management, Mindy was in the middle of raising two talented boys when tragedy struck. Mindy’s father and oldest son were murdered by a white-supremacist intent on killing Jews. Mindy’s life purpose changed from guiding people financially to helping people find space to learn about our differences and discover commonalities. With compassion and forgiveness Mindy shares her experience of loss as a daughter and a mother, a wife and co-worker both nationally and internationally. Mindy encourages and motivates audiences to overcome life’s challenges, one day at a time.

Mindy recently  formed a group named R.E.A.T. Black and White Friendships (Respect. Engage. Appreciate. Trust). Formed with intention, the women are creating friendships to enhance their own lives, the lives around them and the world, for the better.
