Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison

Dr. Carrie Kholi-Murchison is Co-Founder + Head of Strategy & Comms at HOLI. Brands, Partner + Farmer at Celie & Squeak, and the Creator of Hella Black Brunch. She's a femme-presenting nonbinary diviner of Black queer magic, who's been defining brands and gathering and growing communities for almost 15 years. As a waymaker—more easily understood as a writer, researcher, entrepreneur, and growth strategist—she merges intellect, enterprise, and a commitment to long term equity in service to values-led, community-focused brands and businesses of all sizes. Her work and advocacy are guided by ancestor Toni Cade Bambara's queerly uncomplicated question: “Are you sure, sweetheart, that you want to be well?”
