The Business of Being Human podcast discusses offering organizations a simpler way to approach DEIB. This approach centers around the humans in the organization and eliminates  the fear around taking on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging initiatives within organizations.

In this episode, Wendy Horng Brawer chats with Victoria Rodgers. Victoria is the IDEA Strategy Director at TiER1 Performance and is responsible for the establishment of IDEA – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility. Victoria has a combined 20 years of leadership in business development, culture transformation through DEIB, learning development, leadership coaching, master facilitation and strategy consulting.

Wendy and Victoria share insights on how they have learned, grown and experimented in the DEIB space and share helpful tools that help simplify what DEIB is essentially about – creating spaces where people feel that they belong and can have productive and authentic relationships with one another. 

Fostering belonging is another topic Wendy and Victoria touch on. Belonging is a two way street, meaning that organizations can do a variety of things to foster equity and inclusion, and individuals can close the loop to create belonging within a system by choosing to accept their company’s invitation to belong. Both sides take responsibility for the mutual relationship together. 

Other tools discussed and shared include design thinking and applying it to creating lasting and generative human experiences within organizations that celebrate diversity. How might we foster empathy, connection, respect, and collaboration and build trust, safety, vulnerability and agency. These seasoned leaders of inclusive spaces share in this fireside chat.

Unlock more potential in your team by making your workplace more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Quickly build the required skills and culture with our DEIB workshops and trainings.

ADJUSTING IN A NEW BUSINESS PARADIGM – 5 Ways to Adjust

The terms “return to normal” and “new normal” are on high circulation. We think that these terms are somewhat inaccurate (or overly optimistic?), because we’re likely in for an unpredictable and long-lasting period of change. Here are some changes you can make now.

The New Face of U.S. Health Care?

Amidst the immediacy of this crisis, it is important to begin to consider the less-urgent-but-still-critical question of what the American health care system might look like once the current rush has passed. In particular, what can the system learn from the existential challenges it faces due to the spread of Covid-19?
