Listeners will be equipped with the inspiration and knowledge needed to make critical, long-term and meaningful changes.
Months after the world’s racial reckoning and subsequent diversity efforts, recent research shows employees with diverse backgrounds are struggling the most during COVID.
And while most organizations are aware of the issues faced by diverse groups, it’s through listening that the most effective EDI strategies can be forged to create a true sense of belonging for marginalized employees during office shutdowns and remote work.
On this episode, Beyond the Pledge series host, Jai Tedeschi, chats with Performance ReNEW Founder and President Natasha Bowman about the pandemic’s impact on how we work. Tedeschi and Bowman share how individuals and organizations can create a sense of belonging for employees of all backgrounds, from getting comfortable with pointing out inequities and establishing brave spaces, to holding leaders accountable.
