Informative and entertaining podcast

Great info about DEI and how important it is in today’s business environment.

So much to love

Rob and Nadia are incredibly knowledgeable about DEI but also business in general. They know how to identify the important elements of their subjects, they move the conversation quickly and succinctly, they make it about their subjects and not about them and ask the questions you’re hoping they ask. Excellent! Having listeners as hosts is very different from most podcasts. This perspective is much needed. Keep up the great work. Everyone interested in business, not just DEI, will learn from this podcast.
