Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
Flags, Food & Fun
“We started off with affinity groups, which were more social groups getting together around social groups… the groups that would throw the Cinco de Mayo party.. we call them Flags, Food & Fun”
A $50bn business opportunity
“Just today, our top honouree, General Motors, their Diversity & Inclusion council helped provide, I believe it was like $50bn in potential revenue because of the work their groups were doing, reaching out to the communities, and not only that test marketing devices for automobiles”
“It gives that visibility to people who are working remotely or not a part of a day to day work environment, they give them that visibility to really start interacting with those at headquarters”
