Episode Info: Diversity is the future. When an organization has a diversified workforce, this meant better productivity, creativity, and stronger company reputation. It puts the company in a competitive edge that can lead to greater reach in the future. This is why many are seeking to employ people from different backgrounds. Regardless of a company's good intentions, diversity efforts still falter if the ones with privilege won't allow others equal access to power. How can we break this norm and shift others into building a sustainable culture of inclusion? How can we establish a commitment and match our intents with our impact? In today’s episode, La’Wana Harris, the author of Diversity Beyond Lip-Service joins us to talk about her book and the topic of diversity and inclusions. We also talk about how organizations can make it safe to have conversations around diversity and inclusions and be aware where we are at and where we want to go.
