The First, The Few, The Only with Deepa Purushothaman
Show Notes

Deepa Purushothaman was a senior partner at the world's largest professional services corporation, focusing on women's leadership and inclusion strategies, assisting women of color navigate corporate structures. She was the first Indian American woman and one of the youngest people to make partner in the firm's history. Twenty years of globetrotting, and regularly logging over one-hundred-hour weeks as a corporate athlete left her flatlined.  Deepa pivoted during her quest to heal herself, leaving the corporate world in 2020; she then co-founded nFormation, a company offering safe new space, placing women of color in C-suite positions and on boards.  Deepa holds degrees from Wellesley College, Harvard Kennedy School, and The London School of Economics. Her current book, The First, The Few, The Only has a March 2022 release date. We are thrilled to welcome Deepa to Intrinsic Drive™.
