    Trier Bryant - Beyond Diversity - Building an Inclusive Workplace Culture

    Trier Bryant - Beyond Diversity - Building an Inclusive Workplace Culture

    When it comes to creating a truly just workplace, many companies today seem fixated on ticking off diversity metrics. But DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging) is not just about numbers - it's about creating a culture where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued.
    Our guest today, Trier Bryant, the President of 82VS, Alloy Therapeutics’ affiliated venture studio that builds and invests in next-generation biotech companies and the Co-Founder and CEO of Just Work, puts it perfectly: "If even your straight white men don't have a good experience at work, increasing the diversity of your workforce will not solve the problem - it will probably make it worse."
    Tune in to this episode with Trier to learn about creating truly inclusive and equitable workplaces.

    Drama in the workplace is a major drain on productivity, creativity, and collaboration. It manifests as emotional outbursts, unresolved disagreements, resistance to change, or misalignment with strategic priorities.

    Fortunately, we can learn how to minimize or even eliminate drama in the workplace, and that’s exactly what we talk about in this episode of the CultureLab podcast with my guest, Caitlin Walker.
