Episode Info: It's not good enough to make the 'empathy case' for diversity in the workplace, you have to make a 'business case.' That's what our guest today, Jennifer Brown, sets out to do in every meeting, keynote and presentation she gives.  A more inclusive work environment is less stressful, more productive, better equipped to make big decisions and ultimately more profitable. So why are small, medium and large businesses still struggling to throw away bias and include more diverse voices? Where is the gap between leadership that wants to hire a more diverse workforce and finding the people to fill those positions?
