23. Cherie Caldwell: From Math Wiz to Corporate HR VP to Transformation Coach

Cherie Caldwell is the former head of DE&I for a tech firm and the former region vice president of human resources for a major media company. In that role, she led HR for a $5 billion revenue business that spanned 7 states, 100+ locations, and a 5,600-person workforce.

She was laid off in 2023 and instead of returning to become another corporate VP, she decided to walk away from her corporate role, finally let go of her corporate identity, and return to being an entrepreneur. This time she redefined herself as an entrepreneur and launched a business that is better aligned with who she is now.

Cherie is a diversity thought leader and after being introduced to the Adult Chair Model of coaching, she is now a certified Adult Chair coach.
