Future Fluency is a podcast series that challenges conventional thinking about the links between innovation, culture, and the changing face of America, and what it all means for business. We convene a wide range of perspectives—from those of neuroscientists and sociologists to those of authors and business leaders—to help make sense of how we think about diversity in this era of disruption. Hosted by Erin Essenmacher and Ashley Marchand Orme, Future Fluency is produced by the National Association of Corporate Directors.

Fresh, Accessible Perspective
After listening to one episode of this new podcast, I immediately subscribed and look forward to continuing to hear the fresh perspective NACD is bringing to the topic. This first episode on diversity in the workplace brings in expert perspectives yet challenges conventional thinking. Love the podcast forum for this topic.
Bunch of complaining women (from someone with a strong record of supporting women in the workplace).
NACD missed the boat on this one. This podcast will quickly evolve or die.
