The Women’s Inequity Crisis in the Workplace | Brielle Valle
The pandemic has not only affected a huge part of our lives, it has also exposed some of the underlying challenges that have existed for many years, one of which is women’s inequity. From managing family health, to caring for children, or choosing whether to work from home or return to the physical workplace, women have disproportionately experienced challenges that could be better managed, if they receive the required support. In this episode, Brielle Valle shares insights from her latest book - Default to Responsibility: Women’s Plight During COVID-19 and the Solution to Reaching Equality - and provides learnings for leaders and key decision makers in corporations. The episode will leave you with a deeper understanding of areas to look out for, in order to create and implement processes that truly support employee’s needs.
Generational Intelligence in the Workplace | Rachel Rudo Munyaradzi
From Baby boomers to Gen Zs, organizations are experiencing more generational diversity in their workforces. More than ever, there is a growing need to embrace change and create more inclusive policies and structures, in order to harness the uniqueness that each generation brings to the workplace. In this episode, Rachel Rudo Munyaradzi dissects the concepts of generational intelligence, reciprocal mentoring, and knowledge transfer. She emphasizes the importance of meeting your employees where they are, regardless of their life stages, in order to be truly inclusive, support them to deliver the best at work, and achieve success for your organization.
Women in Leadership During the Pandemic | Diane Crawford
The pandemic has had huge effects on the world and one group of people who have been greatly affected are women. From managing the home front to managing their careers and in some cases having to make the difficult decision of choosing one over the other, women have continued to show great tenacity in the midst of this global crisis. Through the years, women have shown the ability to shoulder a lot of pressure and sometimes need the confidence to step up to bigger leadership roles. In this episode, Diane Crawford gives insights into the pandemic, crisis management, and how women can make a huge difference in leadership at this time.
Making DEI Initiatives Succeed | Michael Bach
Companies continue to invest and re-evaluate their Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs, in a bid to ensure genuine change within their organizations. However, organizations are prone to pitfalls that can easily be avoided, if certain structures are put in place. One of such structures is to take DEI beyond a program to becoming a part and parcel of the entire organizational decision making process.
Connecting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiatives to KPIs | Rocki Howard
Why should organizations connect Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and what would that actually look like?
While companies are getting more deliberate about prioritizing DEI in organizational structures, it is important to actually keep tabs on progress made. Where possible, organizations should set up appropriate criteria for measurement, ensuring they not only talk about DEI, but are actually implementing it in clear and measurable ways. In this episode, Rocki Howard shares the importance of measuring DEI initiatives in organizations and how this can be done.
Impact of Remote Work on Inclusion | Bev Attfield
In this episode, Dr. Melissa Horne speaks with Workplace Scientist Bev Attfield on remote work and its effect on organizations, leadership and employees. Bev shares how we can create an inclusive work environment, regardless of location, and increase the sense of belonging and wellness for employees.
Timely and valuable topics
This podcast presents a variety of important and interesting topics in the DEI world. I’ve learned a lot of things listening to this podcast, and I enjoy how the format is centred into a deep dive around just one question, rather than trying to cover too many things in one session. The 20ish-minute format means I can listen to a podcast in one go - I love listening to Dr. Horne’s interviews while I walk my dog!
Every episode of Just One Q just opens up your mind! It helps you see through your diversity, equity and inclusion flaws and leaves you wanting to do better!
Engaging, Informative and Easy to Apply
