Board Member

Karlyn Percil is a Certified Emotional Intelligence and Neuro-Life Coach with keen focus on diversity, inclusion, and belonging. She is the Chief Executive Officer of KDPM Consulting Group INC., and the Founder of SisterTalk Group Leadership and Wellness Academy, a group dedicated to amplifying the voices of Black, Indigenous, WoC and leveraging personal narratives as a catalyst of success. Karlyn has dedicated her career to helping corporations plan, develop, and execute successful and comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion strategies to support organization and human optimization goals. Her motivation to improve the status quo stems from her passion as a black leader and her former twenty plus year career as a bank executive, where she experienced discrimination, racial/gendered biases, and emotional tax. She is passionate about change and believes that inclusion is not just a trend, but a verb that requires action.

She has served on the Board of the Black Business and Professional Association, as the Chair of The Harry Jerome Awards and through SisterTalk Group mentored and supported the leadership development of young girls in North America, especially in her birth home St.Lucia through her SisterTalk Mentorship Circles. Karlyn has also worked with UNICEF and the Toronto Police Service on the Break The Stigma - a campaign to help change policy and eradicate sexual violence against women and girls. She is also a Guest Expert on Cityline, the longest-running daytime talk show for women.

She is currently in the process of writing her first book.
