DEI-JB Consultant, Trainer & Coach
Kyrah J. Altman channeled her early childhood trauma and mental illness into the co-founding of Let’s Empower, Advocate, and Do (LEAD). Kyrah’s niche is empowering organizational leaders to support the mental health of their staff by building trauma-informed, culturally competent, and LGBTQIA2S+ inclusive workplace communities. In the nine years since, Kyrah scaled LEAD into the international industry leader of mental health and diversity, equity, and inclusion education. Altman is also credited with developing the nation’s FIRST mental health certification tailored to a workplace setting, known as Corporate Mental Health certification. She speaks internationally about the impact of social entrepreneurship on trauma survivors, the importance of proactive mental health education in historically marginalized communities, and the idea that “while not everyone has a mental illness, everyone can improve their mental health.” Kyrah resides in her home state of MA as a proud dog and plant mom with a deeply-rooted love for arts and crafts and Kripalu.
