Is Your Organization Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Ready?

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) work within organizations has gotten a lot of press lately. But what does it take for a company to truly become more diverse, equitable and inclusive?

To dive more deeply into the topic for this episode, I have brought on Wema Hoover.
