Viva Asmelash, Inclusion Strategist & Consultant
Viva’s professional purpose is to create environments where people feel truly seen and are inspired to be their best and most authentic selves. She brings this to life as a strategic and intuitive people operations professional with 15 years of experience in purpose-driven branding, high-impact DEI work, leadership training & development, and career-focused marketing. Her sweet spot is the intersection of inclusive messaging, driving people-centered strategic outcomes, and facilitating critical conversations with grace.
For over seven years, she developed the employer brand at Galileo Learning that drew an annual average of over 7,000 applicants, launched and co-led the multi-faceted DEI strategy, managed multiple thought leadership initiatives, and worked to ensure Galileo’s consistent recognition—including being named one of The SF Business Times’ Best Places to Work in the Bay Area (with over ten consecutive years on the list), a Real Leader Magazine Top 100 Impact Company, and one of Forbes’ 25 Best Small Companies in America.
She is a first generation Eritrean-American woman, whose mother—while pregnant with her—emigrated to the United States as a political refugee with three other small children. This has given her a unique, life-long perspective on race, gender, culture, belonging, privilege, and access to education.
