Katara McCarty is a force of nature in the well-being and empowerment of Black women. As the CEO of Katecha Corp, she has showcased a unique blend of leadership insight and compassionate outreach, charting new pathways for inclusive growth.

But Katara's true magnum opus lies in her brainchild – the Exhale App. Recognizing Black women's often-neglected mental and emotional well-being needs, she crafted an innovative platform that serves as a sanctuary, offering tools and resources tailored specifically to uplift, empower, and support.

A gifted orator, Katara takes her passion to stages across the globe as a sought-after keynote speaker. Her eloquence and powerful narratives have captivated audiences, always centering on her life's mission: the unwavering priority of the well-being of Black Women in every facet of their lives.

Beyond the corporate world and the digital space, Katara has immortalized her insights and wisdom through the written word. As an accomplished author, her works serve as both a beacon and a guide, reflecting her profound commitment to fostering an environment where Black women not only survive but thrive.

In every endeavor, Katara's purpose shines brightly: to ensure that Black women, often pillars of strength in their communities, are given the tools, respect, and care they rightly deserve. With a heart full of passion and a vision clear and unyielding, she continues her journey, inspiring many and changing the narrative one exhale at a time.

State of Self-Care for Black Women: A Comprehensive Insight
Dive deep into a thorough analysis of the results of the “State of Self-Care for Black Women”, a first-of-its-kind report. This report delves into the data and examines Black Women's experience of mental, emotional, and physical health using survey responses from 1,005 Black Women in the U.S.

The findings indicate the role racial trauma, stereotypes, and discrimination play in Black Women's experience of stress while highlighting the essential function of culturally appropriate resources and tools to support emotional well-being and mental health.

Presented by Katara McCarty, this keynote unravels a compelling narrative driven by data, insights, and powerful stories, emphasizing the resilience and empowerment that define Black Women.

Key Takeaways:
1. A thorough understanding of the multi-dimensional well-being challenges faced by Black Women.
2. Insights into the intersectionality of racism, gender bias, and their impact on mental, emotional, physical, and workplace well-being.
3. The profound effects of systemic racism and its economic ramifications on Black Women's careers and lives.
4. Steps forward: How individuals and organizations can promote holistic well-being for Black Women.

The emergence of businesses addressing the demands of Diversity & Inclusion has resulted in a more profound and thoughtful mandate – How will companies in the next several years cultivate a culture of belonging? In this session, Katara explores with the audience ways to build on D&I efforts that have been fostered with future steps leaders must take to fully embody a culture where all people know and feel they belong. Katara’s own experiences allow for learning and growing that will bring about the transformative culture this generation’s workforce seeks to embrace.
