“It is our inclination to network with those that look like us, however if we make a conscious effort to diversify our networks, we will in turn be taking small steps to becoming diversity and inclusion champions"
We've seen an interest in diversity and inclusion grow in the past several years. While we understand that this trend is one pointed towards growth and acceptance, there are many of us who still aren't quite sure what being a true D & I advocate actually means.
My guest this week, Perrine Farque, an internationally recognized diversity and inclusion speaker and author of Inclusion: the ultimate secret to an organization's success, and TEDx Talk speaker, who was nominated in the Top 50 Most Influential Women in UK Tech, invites us into an incredible conversation around what D & I in the workplace looks like and the many ways that leadership teams and organizations can support these ongoing efforts.
