"I instruct young people to write down everything. Because they are history". What a beautiful thought. Deborah states that at some point the "Boomers" will all be out of the workforce and that history will be gone.
She also asks "how many 'boomers' have podcasts?" Many. And Roy shares that "Seniors" are one of the top Youtube watchers.
An amazing story about diversity on so many levels.
In this episode, Roy Miller hosts Deborah Levine who is a Forbes Magazine Top Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazer, author of 15 books, and Editor of The American Diversity Report.
Deborah's story is beautiful and has rich history involved in this.
Deborah shares that she is a member of the only Jewish family to have lived four generations on the Island of Bermuda.
To diversity, she said that she was born into it. Being the only Jewish child on the Island of Bermuda growing up and then moving to Long Island at seven with a British accent, it was a part of her world. Diversity.
When asked if Harvard had "exclusion", Deborah said it was interesting. She explains the "wild" time, which included being during the Vietnam war and that women were challenged.
These notes could be pages long, so please listen to this. It is a wonderful and inspiring story.
