3 Crucial Concepts for Diversity & Inclusion: Workforce, Workplace and Marketplace

This is the 100th episode of the show; we made it!

Now we’ve got the basics in place, I need to prepare you for what’s coming next.

Get your pen and paper ready because this is our 100th episode and so I want to provide some clarity on everything that I’ve been doing and discuss 3 crucial concepts that you should use to help you manage your inclusion activities.

In todays show I discuss several things including:

  • Our 100th episode
  • 3 Crucial Concepts for Diversity & Inclusion that you need to understand
  • How we use the 3 concepts to frame everything we do and much much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show:

This is the 100th episode

“It’s been a busy few weeks, in between everything else, we’ve had our second birthday, we’re launching a coaching programme and now we’re on episode 100!

100 episodes in 2 years, that’s 30 hours of audio and over 2000 slides”

Your Inclusion efforts should impact Workforce, Workplace or Marketplace

“I want you to think of this as lens for looking through everything that we discuss now, in the past and in the future.

This is going to be part of your toolkit. Of course you need to tweak this to make it fit for you but as always, the core principles we discuss here are the same”

We create resources to impact Workforce, Workplace & Marketplace

“The coaching programme is designed to hit all 3

The book I’m writing is designed to hit all 3

The resources I’m working on are designed to hit all 3”
