Diversity and Confusion

Diversity and Confusion

Is our current discussion and hyperfocus on 'diversity and inclusion' a REAL indication that change is happening in corporate America? Does the feminism movement belong in the workplace? Are African Americans in leadership roles as the token 'face' of diversity, or do they really have the power to make a difference? And, am I the only one wondering how white men feel about all of this? (stop rolling your eyes...) In this podcast, I'm talking about all of the things we're secretly thinking when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. As always, I'll be adding my unconventional insights to challenge the status quo, and expand our thinking on all things DEI. You don't want to miss it!

The experience was NOTHING like what Dr. Brandi expected. In this episode she's reflecting on her conversations with over 50 white professionals from around the world (yep, Ireland was in the building). Plus, le...

Dr. Brandi is calling out EVERYONE who claims they're fighting for inclusion while hypocritically being exclusionary themselves. Oh yes, the "woke wars" as she calls them, are in full effect and you have officially been put on notice if you've been behaving badly in the name of "equity". How about demonstrating some emotional competence? How about showing mutual respect? Those rules still apply and Dr. Brand...

Dr. Brandi invites listeners to join her for an episode of "So You Think You're an Ally", as she breaks down her top ten allyship #fails of Summer 2020.

Corporate America, 

If you're going to hire or promote an African American/Black professional or anyone for that matter, make sure that they've been put through a fair and equitable process like everyone else. Your employees can tell that Joe is a "token hire", and will most likely NOT take him seriously. Your motivation for hiring decisions is key.

Sincerely,

Dr. Brandi
