Episode 275 – Creating a Culture of Belonging (Classic Episode) with Jennifer Brown

Episode Overview

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? We’ll find that out, plus, what you can do to help yourself or someone that is being marginalized in the workplace. 

Jennifer is a dangerous as hell, power-woman ready to fight bias and dish out diversity. You’ve been warned!
