Manage episode 347810206 series 2795208
Check out Kyle's interview with pioneer diversity consultants James Rodgers and Laura Kangas - together they believe the soul of diversity work is dangerously close to being lost. DEI work is getting a bad reputation – because it's not being done right.
Co-authors of the new book, Diversity Training That Generates Real Change: Inclusive Approaches That Benefit Individuals, Business, and Society [Berrett-Koehler, July 26, 2022], Jim and Laura exemplify the power of deliberate diversity. Their goal is to spark a worldwide revolution of informed practitioners, employees, and business leaders who will demand diversity training be given the same time, resources, and attention as any other critical enterprise initiative.
