    Is the Workplace the Perfect Place to Talk About Race? with Gina Greenlee and Margaret Greenberg

    Is the Workplace the Perfect Place to Talk About Race? with Gina Greenlee and Margaret Greenberg

    The workplace is often one of the only places we interact with diverse groups, one of few places in society that still maintains civility and also a place where there is an expectation to continue to learn and grow if you want to stay relevant. So yes, the workplace is the perfect place to talk about race according to Gina Greenlee and Margaret Greenberg, co-authors of the forthcoming book "The Business of Race."

    Tune in to this episode to learn why stumbling through conversations on race is better than avoiding the discussion, how to use conflict as a tool for transformation, how to pass the "Kumbaya Test" as an ally, and how to take the management processes you already use in your business and apply them toward creating racial equity in your workplace.

    Teaching, Coaching and a Keynote Speaker since 1986, Gina Greenlee is a highly regarded and sought out leader. She has produced a catalogue of 14 books with more to be released. A native of New York, Gina has travelled extensively internationally and visited many countries in the world. Gina appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show for a profound and inspiring segment called, “Remembering Your Spirit.”

    Margaret H. Greenberg is the coauthor of the bestselling business book, "Profit from the Positive: Proven Leadership Strategies to Boost Productivity and Transform Your Business" and a sought after executive coach and international speaker. A pioneer in the field of positive psychology, Greenberg also designs and leads workshops, webinars, and conferences for business audiences and is an expert on creating strengths-based organizations. One of Margaret’s specialties is bringing tools from the new field of positive psychology to boost productivity in the workplace.

    Radical Inclusion Through Open Hiring

    Radical Inclusion Through Open Hiring

    Most companies spend a lot of time and money screening people out. Open Hiring® shifts investment and human resources into training, learning and development, benefits, and employee support.

    Greyston Bakery is proof that it works. It produces 40,000 thousand pounds of world-class baked goods daily for companies like Ben & Jerry’s and Whole Foods Market, and retail customers through its online store.

    Open Hiring is good for business. It allows companies to save on recruitment costs and access a broader pool of talent to meet their hiring needs. It creates value in organizations while fostering equality, respect, and growth in communities.

    Sara Marcus is the Director of the Greyston Center for Open Hiring. In her role, she oversees partnerships with employers, non-profit partners, and funders with the ultimate goal of fostering the adoption of Open Hiring across industries to help companies remove barriers to employment.

    Mubarak Bashir is the Regional Director for The Greyston Center for Open Hiring and is introducing Greyston’s innovative Open Hiring® model to the Rochester community, to assist local businesses in creating more inclusive workforces and create job opportunities for individuals who face barriers to unemployment.

    Capitalism For The Common Good with Adrian Hale

    Capitalism For The Common Good with Adrian Hale

    "Poverty is a deficit of choices...and we cannot apply an ethic of individualism to people who cannot take action as individuals," says Adrian Hale.

    Tune in to this episode to hear his insights on:
    -Why our current form of capitalism is more like "corporate cannibalism"
    -How philanthropy can be a trojan horse for corporate reputation...and prevent meaningful change
    -The systems and contexts that restrict opportunities
    -New Rochester Chamber "Colors of Success" trainings on equity and inclusion

    According to this Marine, "self-interest is inherently un-American...doing good should be our fundamental obligation to each other."

    Adrian is the Senior Manager of Workforce, Economic Development & Education Initiatives at the Rochester Chamber of Commerce. As a United States Marine, he made two combat deployments to Afghanistan and served with the United States Air Force reserves. Adrian graduated from Monroe Community College with distinction in 2014 and was a recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence. Upon graduation, Adrian transferred to Yale University, where he received his B.A. in Political Science and became a Director’s Fellow at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies with a focus on education reform and police accountability.

    At the Chamber, Adrian has helped create market driven training programs and is leading a regional talent strategy initiative to better coordinate among K-12 systems, colleges, and employers. He is helping to lead a regional conversation on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace with the creation of Creating Opportunities in Rochester for Equity in Employment (COREE), an initiative to remove barriers to advancement for historically marginalized stratums in the labor market.

    For Adrian’s contributions toward progress of our community, he was nominated for two 2019
    ROC Black Men Achieve Awards, the Thomas A. Banister Jr. Community Leader of the Year Award and the Ceremony’s highest honor, Man of the Year. In both categories Adrian is the youngest nominee to date. Adrian looks forward to continuing to do what he can today, until he can do more tomorrow.
