Elyse Dickerson struggled in school as a result of dyslexia but persevered to find her inner greatness and become a much respected and lauded CEO of her own company. Listen as Elyse shares how she was able to push through low expectations of educators throughout her childhood, and later, the gender-biased behaviors of colleagues to become the accomplished founder and leader of Eosera, a biotech company that is a pioneer in the Conscious Capitalism movement, putting purpose, people, and company values before profit.

After starting her career in retail, Elyse Dickerson made a move to the pharmaceutical industry, where she spent 13 years at Alcon launching new products globally and managing a $1.7 billion product portfolio.

Elyse has earned honors such as Most Admired CEO and Fort Worthian to Watch, as well as awards like the Trailblazer Brand Champion Industry Award, the Women in Business Award from the Dallas Business Journal, and the Top Business Award from the Fort Worth Business Press. Elyse is also a mentor, mother, wife, accomplished athlete, and engaging public speaker who is a strong advocate for women in business and for gender equality.
