“What we know matters, but who we are matters more.”

— Brené Brown

Welcome Emerging Humans,
conscious leaders, and connectors of all kinds...

Emerging Human grew out of our parent company, Emerging Women, in response to the demand for our programs to reach a wider audience of top talent ready to change the way we lead. We discovered that whether you identify as a woman, black American, or another group underrepresented within your community or organization, the challenges of being seen, heard, and felt are similar. We also found that many allies within our client organizations are eager to help others rise, champion change, and further develop themselves to be the human-centered, empathetic leaders that represent the future of work.

And so we created Emerging Human, a partner organization to Emerging Women, that helps all people step into the fullness of who they are while creating a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion and justice.

Since 2016, we have delivered transformational leadership programs to over 1,400 high-potential, high-performing men and women at Fortune 100 tech companies across the globe.

We are a team of facilitators, coaches, HR professionals, business leaders, and entrepreneurs, and together we create an ecosystem of intentional high-performance, personal transformation and belonging. We are each, like you, a brilliant contributor to this world. As a community we are changing the face of power.

Gayle Karen Young

Gayle Karen Young

Gayle believes the world needs more leaders who are “able for” what lies ahead, who have developed the capacity to meet the complexity of global challenges. Working in the field of leadership for the past two decades, it has become abundantly clear to her that there are the visible, tangible, practical, and pragmatic aspects of leadership that need to be executed on a day-by-day basis, and then there is the work of caring for the the spaces between people, of seeing complexity and interdependencies, of understanding relationships and power and all the ephemeral things that still excise tremendous influence on the day-to-day behaviors of people. Thus it is the invisible work of leadership, the work of showing up, setting culture, and creating spaces for others to thrive that is the focus of her work. She believes in meeting people and systems wherever they are, and then developing people to work with the full range of who they are to meet the full complexity of the organizational system and operating ecosystem, working with the intangible but critically necessary human substructures to move a strategy forward.

Gayle Karen Young is a cultural architect and a catalyst for human and organizational development. She comes from a rich organizational consulting background with both corporate and nonprofit clients. She was in process of becoming a Zen monk when she became an executive instead, taking on the role of Chief Culture and Talent Officer at the Wikimedia Foundation (CHRO for Wikipedia and its sister free-knowledge projects) until early 2015 when she joined Cultivating Leadership. From high-level strategic thinking to practical implementation, her skills include leadership development, change management, facilitation, training, strategic communications, speaking, team building, and personal and organizational transformation.
