Founder of WatchHerWork, Diversity & Inclusion Strategist, and Work Futurist

Denise Hamilton is an author, speaker, and consultant who focuses on the people side of change. She is a nationally recognized Diversity & Inclusion leader, specializing in Ally training.

Denise is Founder and CEO of WatchHerWork, a digital learning platform for professional women. Whether it’s remote work, AI, or a diversifying workforce, today's leaders need new skills to navigate our rapidly changing world. She has archived the professional experiences of hundreds of women to build a library of over 6,000 videos with one goal in mind: closing the gap for today’s professional women by giving them the advice they need when they need it. Denise leverages her 25 years of executive experience with Fortune 500 organizations like AOL and CBRE to provide solutions that support employees and the bottom line.

Denise is an utterly optimistic believer in our ability to solve problems rather than just name them. Her superpower is the ability to discuss challenging topics and come out of the other side with positive direction and solutions. She uses this gift to lead workshops, design education programs, and coach senior leaders. She equips leaders to build and retain future-ready teams that thrive in dynamic environments. Denise's goal is to empower individuals and teams to mine and close the gender gap, understand differences, resolve conflict, and become better allies. Her clients include household names, like Apple, Meta, ExxonMobil, Amazon, Shell, the United Nations, and the WNBA.

Denise was featured by the New York Times as a nationally recognized expert in social audio and has been featured on the Apple Store, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Huffington Post, Newsweek, FOX, CBS, NBC, MSNBC's Morning Joe, MIT Sloan Management Review and on many other outlets. She was named one of Houston's 50 Most Influential Women by Houston Woman Magazine, one of the 41 Most Fascinating People in Houston by the Houston Chronicle, and a 2018 Woman Who Means Business by the Houston Business Journal.

Denise believes that you shouldn’t have to have powerful friends to have powerful information. She is committed to making sure that the information needed for women to build a business, climb the corporate ladder, and get on boards is available to every woman and the men that support them. Denise currently serves on the board of EMERGE and is the Chair of the Business Subcommittee for the 2020 Census for the City of Houston. She has served on the board for the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce, the RISE School, and Avenue Community Development Corp. She received her Master’s in Communication and her BSW in Social Work from Abilene Christian University.
