Hello everyone and welcome to Blended! This is a brand-new show and it’s going to be a little bit different to what you’ve heard before.

We talk a lot about the challenges facing our industries as a whole – changing technology, network complexity, surprises like COVID-19 – but what we don’t talk as much about is the people. The people that really drive our businesses forward, and specifically, the under-represented.

I’ve been flying the flag for women in supply chain for a few years now, through the podcast and some of my other endeavours, but Blended is going to go much further than that. Because it’s not just women who are under represented in Business – we need to be thinking about Everybody! the LGBTQ+ community, people of colour, those with disabilities and so many more, whether they’re visible or hidden.

To me the word inclusive means that we need to join together, to support each other, to be each other’s allies, to ensure we ALL have a seat at the table to make our daily lives the absolute best it can be. How can we do that without leaning in, understanding and communication? This show will change all of that...

Relevant discussions for today’s world

I recently started listening to Blended. The content is so relevant to today’s world. Sarah is a great host who is passionate about collaborating with people from around the world to discuss all things diversity and inclusion. She is authentic with her guests and keeps them all engaged in the conversation. Speaking of guests, the participants have been so amazing and inspiring!

The My Journey episode really spoke to me - especially the section on using social media. We need to get our children exposed to success stories from all backgrounds so they can envision themselves being successful.

Looking forward to hearing more.

Blended with the Best of Sarah Barnes-Humphrey

While being under-represented is a serious problem, the more serious problem is to create a blended society. Just pushing or promoting one community is no longer enough. We need to take an inclusive approach to ensure that every voice is equally represented in the workplace whether we talk about LGBTQ, people of color, or even the majority that might be living under extreme conditions in poverty.

All lives equally matter. All voices equally matter.

And who better to start this show than one of the most popular hosts Sarah Barnes-Humphrey. The existing episodes have been amazing, and I am super excited to listen to future ones. This is your show if you are an HR professional or in the business of culture consulting, or someone who cares for creating an inclusive approach to your workplace.

Don't wait, just hit the subscribe button, and you will learn a lot while having tons of fun.
