Sophie Williams

Sophie Williams is a bestselling author, businesswoman working in marketing and advertising, and proud anti-racism advocate.

She first came to global prominence in June 2020 when the singer Justin Bieber shared her work during the Black Lives Matter wave following George Floyd’s death.

As of September 2022, she has published two books; her debut, Anti-Racist Ally (2020), was a small book introducing allyship in the workplace and the wider community. This was followed up in 2021 with Millennial Black, a women’s business book created for black women, after Sophie realised that most business books were aimed at supporting white women.

Sophie is a top-rated keynote speaker, inspiring audiences on diversity, inclusion, equality, racism, the race pay gap and allyship.

By far the best presentation of the day – and indeed the conference. Very thought provoking and educational, in terms of understanding key concepts and indeed definitions.

Excellent presentation challenging our thinking and giving really thought provoking ideas on how to be an activist, anti-racist and an ally.

We couldn’t have had better feedback on your session during our diversity week. It was the highest attended session with 150 colleagues and they are still talking about it today.

A fantastic session; impactful and thought-provoking, delivered engagingly and with wit, wisdom and empathy.
