Director, Leading with Inclusion

Xochitl Ledesma is the Director of our Leading with Inclusion Team and is focused on partnering with supporters to create learning programs that foster inclusive leadership at all levels of an organization. She is an advocate of creating inclusive behavior through impactful events, such as our “Creating Your Inclusive Communication Style” workshop in which attendees form bonds with each other by assessing their unconscious bias through interactive case studies.

Prior to joining Catalyst, Xochitl worked for EY’s cybersecurity practice in NY where she managed cybersecurity projects with C-suite and operational teams, developed firm-wide communication plans for F500 firms, and executed client workshops. After EY, Xochitl moved to France where she earned her Master’s Degree at Skema Business School. While in France, she also worked as a consultant with several organizations on event design and strategic communications.

In addition to her Master’s degree, Xochitl earned her BBA from Georgetown University with a focus on Information Systems & Marketing.
