    26. The Tech Skills Gap and How Inclusion Can Solve It w/ Jacqueline de Rojas

    26. The Tech Skills Gap and How Inclusion Can Solve It w/ Jacqueline de Rojas

    What is it like to be a woman in technology? It's still a male dominated world, after all, with just 17% of the workforce being women. In addition to gender balance, technology lacks ethnic diversity as well, showing very little black, Asian, or Indian representation. 
    We can do better.
    Jaqueline de Rojas is president of Tech UK, the association that represents 900 companies in the digital sector in the UK. She is also chair of the Board of Digital Leaders and has been described as one of the most influential women in tech in the UK.
    We talked with Jaqueline about:
    How advances in AI emphasize the need for diversity in technology. The importance of transparency with new algorithms. The need for AI to have larger data sets. Examples of problematic behaviors in the tech workplace and practical tips for solving them.

    25. Everything You Need to Know About Financial Inclusion

    25. Everything You Need to Know About Financial Inclusion

    If you were new to a country, didn't have a credit score, and had no access to mainstream banking, where would you go for financial assistance? Payday lenders? Credit cards?
    What about a worker who experiences an unexpected change in financial circumstances? How does that person's stress affect themselves, their families, and their employers?
    Financial wellness can contribute to an inclusive economy and social order.
    Asesh Sarkar is Global CEO and Co-founder at Salary Finance, an award-winning global FinTech, and Dhiren Master is Chief Marketing Officer at Salary Finance.
    We chatted to Asesh and Dhiren about:
    How financial worries are related to your spending, saving, and borrowing habits. How people with money worries are five times more likely to have troubled relationships with their colleagues and eight times more likely to have trouble concentrating. The importance of empowering the individual to take better control over the situation that they're in rather than solve the problem for them.

    24. The Neutral Middle Is Hindering Change

    Most of us belong to the neutral middle — but being neutral is no longer enough.
    Frankly, it isn’t actually neutral, either. It’s a tacit agreement that things are okay as they are, when they patently aren’t.
    On this episode, I interview Marissa Ellis, Founder of Diversily and creator of the Change Canvas:
    What we talked about:
    The formula for change Why neutrality isn’t neutral The Change Canvas (P.S. it’s free) Barriers to cultural change & how to overcome them

    22. Why Your D&I Department Won’t Succeed Alone

    22. Why Your D&I Department Won’t Succeed Alone

    As D&I leaders, many of us know that D&I departments alone can’t move the needle on accelerating diversity or increasing inclusion and belonging alone. 
     
    Diversity issues aren’t caused by just one person. They’re caused by the actions of many. 
     
    Which is why to build a truly inclusive culture where diverse teams can thrive, you have to make D&I a company wide priority and give every person in your organization the tools to be more inclusive everyday.
     
    On this episode, we interviewed the brilliant Tiffany Edwards, Engagement and Inclusion Director at Droga5 - the award-winning creative agency responsible for producing brilliant and representative ad campaigns for everyone from Game of Thrones to The New York Times to Prudential.
     
    In this episode, we talked about:
    How to get your leaders to recognize and commit to diversity The power of digital in creating lasting change How to make courageous conversations a habit

    21. Why Your Employer Brand Is Critical For Attracting Diverse Talent (And Why You Might Be Getting It Wrong)

    21. Why Your Employer Brand Is Critical For Attracting Diverse Talent (And Why You Might Be Getting It Wrong)

    Gamiel Yafai is the co-author of Demystifying Diversity and Managing Director at Diversity Marketplace. When he conducted 35 pieces of research about the perceptions minority groups have towards employers he learned 2 major things:
     
    People know your brand, but they don’t know your employer brand. They don’t know the variety of roles you have on offer that might be accessible to them. Often, employer brands are almost invisible to these groups.  
    Of the challenges that minority groups faced in 2003, they’re still facing 95% of them in 2019. If you’re an employer, it’s a mistake to think that what you’re communicating is reaching everyone.  
    Listen to our interview with Gamiel to hear his advice for making sure your employer brand helps - not hinders- you in your mission to attract diverse talent.
