Tragedy to triumph and the inspirational lessons in between.
Born to a teenage drug addict, abused as a child, and raped at fourteen would stop most in their tracks if not derail you for life but not Victoria Pelletier. Her story is one of being unstoppable, of seizing opportunity wherever and whenever it presented itself. Victoria's mantra is #noexcuses. Victoria became a retail store manager in her mid-teens and was offered her first Executive Leadership Position by her early twenties.
Victoria's career trajectory includes leading Diversity and Inclusion initiatives for some of the world's top organizations. Victoria is a mother, a proud supporter of the LGBTQ community, author, speaker and frequent contributor to the conversation on diversity, and leadership on television, print and social media.
