Elkin Alfred is the Director of Health Initiatives for a large nonprofit in South Florida and also serves as a DEI consultant for Group Victory. In these roles, she manages over 3 million dollars to help impact community health outcomes, while also helping to guide community organizations work around racial equity. Her belief is that traditional human services organizations must be willing to examine their approach to serving the most disadvantaged by promoting a culture of curiosity and creativity. This belief led to creation of a mini documentary titled, Faded Conversation: Bringing Black Mental Health to the Forefront.
Elkin is a blogger and co-host of Black In The Days, a podcast celebrating the diversity and the complexity of the Black experience. She is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc, a board member of Debbie’s Dream Foundation and currently sits on Nova Southeastern University Medical School Diversity committee
