It is time for your true allyship.

The old oppressive ways of doing business are dying.


This world is desperate for leaders who can provide the hope of bridging past and future, and the countless divides in the world today.

Be that leader who uses your privilege to support dismantling systems of oppression around you.


🙌🏾 Get visible in your unique leadership (and as an ally) so that your marketing represents your values and you become the no-brainer choice for your prospective clients.

🙌🏾 Replace oppressive business systems, sales tactics, marketing and client engagement (that business owners are often taught) so that you can be in integrity with your values + lead the way as an entrepreneur thriving in the new paradigm, with greater revenue doing it!

🙌🏾 Practice having the difficult conversations (of all types) that uplevel your leadership that lead to deeper trust, more allies, and raving fans in your community that evangelize your work for you and want to buy from you again and again!

🙌🏾 Dismantle systemic oppression in your mind/body/spirit to experience healing and freedom of expression in each area of your life.

🙌🏾 Get the tools for your mind, body, and spirit wellness as you navigate both allyship and increased visibility + receiving in your leadership.

As you step into greater leadership...

...leave behind the outdated oppressive ways of doing.


In the new paradigm, those things would cause:

  • Losing customers

  • Blow ups in the community that require PR coverups, LOTS of headaches and wasted time

  • Potentially your name, brand, and reputation [maybe you’ve seen these]

All averted when you liberate your leadership!

What You Receive

Lisa Dennen-Young, MA was the first woman of color (WOC) to graduate as a forensic linguist in the United States. For 10+ years she’s trained global audiences about cross-cultural communication, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and human expression across professional and personal relationships. Lisa mentors individuals to be epically expressed as their highest calling leadership for success in their relationships, love, and as the visible leader in their communities.


She combines her lineages of medicine women and healers, Civil Rights activists who supported Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in the 60s, her diversity, linguistic, and cross-cultural communication expertise, and her sound healing to create an unparalleled unique experience of learning, healing, and big bold action taking with greater ease as you expand your leadership. 


Her blend of fun and light-hearted depth includes dance, vocals, songwriting, spoken word, sound healing, rhythmic play, poetry, love coaching, and multilingual MCing / presenting. She speaks fluent Spanish and Portuguese, with working knowledge of French, Turkish and Italian, and lives with her partner in Oakland, California.

Dismantle inside yourself what you’ve internalized from the system. (Stereotypes, micro aggressions, unconscious behavior, etc)


DISMANTLE: mindset

Clarify your *real* leadership & business goals with equitable means to reach them. Learn to show up as more YOU in your life and work.


DISMANTLE: language

Understand what oppressive language looks like and learn to communicate with more equity, inclusion and allyship in your work




Ensure that all your processes & systems, from sales calls and contracts to client engagement and re-enrollment, are equitable (Next to no one is teaching this in business!)



Refine your message to be just and equitable, embedding your values on allyship.



Grow your audience (and revenue) through bridging your message and your offering (no matter your product or service!)

Why is this program Unique?

Many DEI consultants and anti-racist educators leave out what is arguably THE most important element, that much of the corporate world is not willing to acknowledge: healing. 

When we heal personal wounds, the work of allyship becomes significantly easier because you are stronger. Here you have the tools to process and heal PLUS have the mindset tools and strategic understanding to implement the right actions for you in your life and business. Here you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with fellow LLers and practice these difficult conversations.

“Since working with Lisa Dennen-Young I have experienced huge shifts of energy around business and money. Opportunities are flowing with momentum and ease unlike what I’ve experienced before. I have several influencers and a huge e-commerce company reaching out asking me to help them with their email copy, and new clients wanting to hire me to help them with lead generation. In another business I run, cash flow and business have dramatically improved.”

Jennifer Gardner, lawyer

"My whole paradigm about racism and anti-racism has changed. I feel as though I've FLIPPED RIGHT SIDE UP after living upside down! From this place, I commit to the journey, with its many levels, serving anti-racism NOW."  -M.M.

"I was grateful to be held with such care and it was exquisite that you wove in connection to the ancestors and sound healing. I never imagined there was a space in which I could enjoy skilled facilitation around the mental and emotional aspects of [DEI} work with deep energetic support." -K.W.

"I received so much ... I actually feel that beyond the information, there was an energetic transmission that occurred. I had the opportunity and TOOK IT to use my voice in three separate occasions in service to being an ally today. That would not have happened before. You helped remove a block that had kept me silent...I took positive actions today that would not have happened, but for your counsel." -B.C.

Renee Hilliard, M.D..jpg

“I now see that I am my brand. My true self and vulnerable expression is what people want. That is the magic and the magnet. 


Lisa helped me managing the fear and anxiety of expressing myself. She helped me gain clarity around my true identity and what it is I want to offer.  Lisa helped me get to a place of feeling worthy of receiving.


She showed me by her example that a successful business can also include self care, ease, fun and pleasure. Thank you Lisa!”

What's Possible

The past we couldn’t control. The present is ours. The future is up to us.

Collectively, individually, communally. 

You have the power within to make a change and do so in a way that enables you ease, peace, and prosperity as you expand.

Your full integrated power is life changing for all of us.

Allies make all the differences in turning the tides of history.

You have an opportunity to be part of history. It is not beyond your means to do so.

Together, in community, we can be the change.



Is this refundable?

No. Make a choice to show up and you will experience the shifts. These training modules will be available to you indefinitely. Get what you need when you need it, and trust that the rest will come.

When does the program start and how do I get on the live community calls?

Our bonus call is starts the week of August 10! Live calls happen Wednesdays at 12pm -130pm PDT and will run live weekly for the next 9 weeks. Calls will happen over Zoom video conference (easy to install on any device if you don’t already have it) and will be recorded so that you don’t miss a thing!

What is the time commitment?

Live calls are 90min, plus modules, videos + integration exercises may take up to 1 hour / week, based on how much time you decide to spend with them. This is designed to be super flexible so you can get exactly what you need when you need it. We recommend showing up to the calls for healing and coaching as priority. You'll have lifetime access to the content and modules.

What if I cannot join live?

All good! We have recordings of every call, + you have unlimited FB group access to ask your questions and get them answered + receive laser coaching.

It’s hard for me to speak up in groups. How will my voice be heard?

Being in groups can feel overwhelming. In accordance with my values, is my duty & honor to maintain a sense of equity in voice and expression during the live calls. It is of the utmost importance to me to personally ensure that all voices are heard, perspectives considered, and experiences valued. I am a fierce protector and will fight for your sense of safety in any space I create. There are many ways that I work to ensure this and bring all voices, including prioritizing the most marginalized voices among us and understanding / appreciating varying communication styles of the more introverted among us. If you want you speak your voice into the group, it is also your responsibility to receive my invitation to do it.

What are the terms & conditions?

Absolutely! View our Terms & Conditions HERE. You'll be agreeing to this once you submit your payment.

Who is this for?

Great question! Leadership Liberation is for all non-black individuals and groups who want to be allies.

I see you do womxn stuff. I don’t identify as a woman / womxn — can I be in?

OF COURSE! Lookie here: We need as many allies as possible! The more in getting access to the deeper guidance to take continuous real-world ACTION as an ally, the better! This program here is for all gender identities and expressions.

I’m not a business owner / entrepreneur / trying to do the business thing. Can I still join?

All good! You don’t need to be. The business-specific content will enlighten you whether you’re the owner of the company where you've worked (worked with) or not. AND on the live calls we coach around any and all questions that come up, regardless of the week's content. You still will get exactly what you need in this program.

I am a person of color (non-black). Being a POC I face a lot of discrimination. Is this program right for me?

Guaranteed. When people have not realized I’m Black but assumed other things (I’m mixed…if I had money for every nationality I’ve been assumed to be, the bank account would be phat AF! lol), the stereotyping, dismissing, minimizing, etc is still there. I do not know your specific experience as a non-Black POC. I understand mine (when my blackness was missed / overlooked). Because anti-blackness lives in all of us, being an ally to Black people is still for you. Would be honored to guide you through this journey.

I am (non-black) Jewish. I / my people have suffered a lot in the world. Not sure this program is for me.

Well love, it is! I am not Jewish — I have spent a lot of time learning about Jewish history and policies + spent time in Jewish culture, AND despite my intellectual knowledge I could never understand your or your family’s lived experiences. What I can do is guide you in your allyship journey for Black people and other marginalized identities you don’t carry.

I’m older & retired. I'm kinda assuming this is for the youngins.

Awesome! Now is the perfect time to take the next step on your allyship journey! Retirees have so much to share and I honor the wisdom of your lived experience (you’ll learn that it’s the systemic oppression that taught people to dismiss older generations / retirees) — what another great skillset to add to your already deep vault of wisdom. What an impact you can make with the older generations too!

I'm an introvert and disappear in groups. Wondering if I'll get the support I need.

I love supporting introverts. Both the content and the coaching style is designed to meet you, ambiverts, extroverts, and also many personality/communication/energetic types where they are. You may feel a lot of things in the coaching spaces I facilitate, but you will NEVER feel outcast or lost in the crowd. Period. This is my personal guarantee.

I am a spiritual guide / leader and I believe in oneness / unity consciousness. This sounds a bit exclusive, even how you’ve listed these demographic points here.

If you believe in Oneness / unity consciousness, then this is the exact reason systemic oppression and racism should be wildly painful for you NOT to address. A part of the whole is suffering greatly because of intentional practices consciously implemented in order to cause harm at the structural level os societies around the world. Join the LL community to support healing in a HUGE part of the whole (ps people of color are a global majority -- when I say huge part I mean HUGE!)

I am disabled. How does this program support me?

Thank you for asking! During the program we will have transcriptions of ALL recorded content (including of the Zoom calls). You are welcome to speak, type, sign your questions into our private Facebook group [which everyone in LL will have unlimited access to]. We are open to meeting other disability needs if and as they come up.

I’m white & cis and I could never learn enough to speak for all people of color. Is this program still right for me?

Perfect! No one wants you to speak *for* us. This is about allyship. Instead of using the truth of not being able to speak for us as a cop out (btw: the idea that you could speak *for* me or any other person is deeply steeped in white supremacy), this is a chance to be in a safe & supportive community with like-minded caring individuals with whom you’ll be able to experience healing around where you’ve internalized the system (we all have), practice safely having the conversations, and learn about the infinite ways you CAN show up in greater allyship.

I love what you share Lisa, but I have A LOT of resistance to signing up. Why is that?

Ooh! I know the feeling of wanting to do a program and having resistance! (I know this feeling so well!) For all the reasons -- money, time, how much something is/isn't a priority for me, wondering about who's in the program, fear of what I'll have to face in a program, wondering if I'll actually experience a shift as a result of a program (and more! Haha you may have just thought of something new because of that last sentence! But hey let’s lay it all out!)
I've been there. So have many of the participants (and many of the hundreds of my clients!). I believe there is a place inside you that knows your real answer, and I believe you have access to that place. Part of dismantling internalized systemic oppression is actually learning to trust that form of intelligence again (your deeper truth) and getting into consistent relationship with it. Should your truth give you a yes, I'm honored to guide you around that.
And, if you're on the fence (which never feels good over time and actually erodes self trust), feel free to ask me your clarifying questions here.
