The principles in this course are exactly what Americans need right now. They teach us how to build connections, communicate across divides, and work toward our goals in a spirit of love.”
“This workshop provided me with a deeper understanding of the human condition and humankind. Chloé uses a holistic approach to understanding racism and practicing antiracism. Her workshops are so powerful that you can’t forget what you learned.”
“By learning about my coworkers, my own self-awareness grew. I learned to empathize with those with opposing opinions by focusing on neurological triggers. After engaging in this session, I left with a new sense of hope in how to foster relationships with all kinds of people.”
Hi, I’m Chloé.
I am an entrepreneur who’s passionate about love.
I developed the Theory of Enchantment as a framework for compassionate antiracism that combines social-emotional learning (SEL), character development, and interpersonal growth as tools for leadership development in the boardroom and beyond.
Bring Chloé Valdary to your event, publication, or podcast to discover antiracism through the lens of love.
I am a former police officer (current federal agent), and I only wish I knew your Theory of Enchantment when I worked as a patrol officer. I intend to fully incorporate the principles embodied in the theory into my own personal and professional life and would like to spread your message of love.
