Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

In light of recent national events that have brought stark racial inequalities to the forefront of the conversation, organizations everywhere are navigating and facilitating unfamiliar discussions between leadership, employees and customers.

To bring light to this conversation, we were fortunate enough to have Simone Morris, CEO of Simone Morris Enterprise LLC, join us on the podcast to discuss diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace. She brings her wealth of knowledge from her career as an award-winning diversity and inclusion leader, to discuss with us what types of conversations need to be had in the workplace, who should be leading the charge on those discussions, and what organizations can do to best demonstrate their support for diversity and inclusion. The second half of this episode was recorded a few months back and highlights the power behind a D&I strategy and how HR can help influence a more inclusive culture. A must-listen-to episode.
