    Diversity, Inclusion and Business with Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.

    Diversity, Inclusion and Business with Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.

    My guest is a friend of the broadcast. I met Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. several years ago at a seminar for teachers and civic leaders. We sat down for a conversation and it was a hit. Today we'll talk about his work, his books, why diversity should matter for business leaders, Aaron Rogers (no, really) and his effort to build a series of "diversity institutes" in communities across Iowa and elsewhere. Meet Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr.

The real deal!

Michael is the real deal when it comes to DIY podcasting. Amazing content. Great questions. Professional work all around. Amazing podcast based in Iowa!

Pocket warrior ,

Could be so much better

Just report the facts, and please leave your political leanings out of business updates. The host is overtly left leaning, which in itself is fine, but he lets that ruin what should simply be the facts by spinning everything against the president.

Emily in Iowa ,

Interesting local perspective!

Michael asks great questions and it's great to hear about local work
