The Re-Education of Diversity
Seven years ago, we dropped our first episode, The Miseducation of Diversity [highly recommend re-listening with the link below], and a lot has changed, but many things have remained the same regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion within creative industries. So, we're talking about the state of DEI in a post 'George Floyd Economy', while reflecting on episode 1. But first, we hit on McCann's CCO's group chat fumble and the mispronunciation of IS-Suh Rae at CultureCon. https://soundcloud.com/ask-mixed-company/mixed-company-episode-1-div

The Rise of Introverts Ft. Kat Gordon
Kat Gordon is back on the pod! A few weeks ago, Kat, the founder of the 3% Movement, released a Substack article, The Rise of Introverts. In her article, Kat outlines how leadership in corporations has historically over-indexed with extroverts, but the future will see a lot of shared traits among introverts being in demand because they will fuel inclusive cultures and ground-breaking creativity.
