On this episode of the Leading in a Lonely World podcast, Vanessa Kelly speaks with Sonya Richburg, Employment Counsel with Coca-Cola Consolidated.

Sonya Richburg is a bright light among in-house employment lawyers who uses her passion for mentorship, community, and leading with a genuine voice to guide employment at Coca-Cola Consolidated. Sonya was in the unique position of leading the employment response for essential workers, remote workers, and workers in the disadvantaged recreational and entertainment parts of the business. She describes her leadership style as flexible depending on who she is working with – it may be “top-down,” collaborative, or as an influencer based on the situation. She views leadership as being “responsible” for others. Sonya also shared her perspectives on being a woman of color and being able to have candid conversations about race in the workplace and equipping people to continue those conversations. She is committed to mentoring those within and outside of her organization. She also makes it her job to ensure that leadership recognizes the talent within the organization and provide opportunities for developing leaders to be seen and promoted, instead of hiring outside. During COVID, she has learned to prioritize the relationships that are meaningful to her and spend time developing these relationships. As a Board member of Campfire, she seeks to provide girls and boys with the tools to meet the challenges where they are at, not just for the future. Please join us for conversation and be uplifted by Sonya’s positivity and genuineness. See less -
