On Wednesday episodes, I share leadership beliefs and unlabel terminology. I invite guests to share their expertise about small or big acts of leadership.
In Episode 23, Simma Lieberman, my expert on DE&I, helps me decipher Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
00:00 Prologue: Discovered through Social Media
I discovered Simma through her blogs on Multibriefs, which lead me to her podcast about diversity. Simma, a.k.a. The Inclusionist, is an award-winning professional who consults, coaches, and offers powerful keynotes. If you plan to meet 50 people this year, ensure that Simma is one of them.
01:28 Part 1: Debunking the Need for Similar People
What makes diversity in organizations diverse? Simma answers this question.
07:24 Part 2: You Need More than Equal Access
Equality doesn’t mean that there is equity. Both terms are worth unlabeling, and Simma does just that!
13:44 Part 3: Accessing Their Brilliance
If you have diversity, do you have inclusion? What does it mean to have an inclusive culture and organization? Simma helps me demystify inclusion by answering these questions.
21:50 Part 4: Take Diversity to Lunch
Whether a manager or a team member, Simma offers practical ways for us to enable teams and organizations to diversify and become more inclusive.
