Let's Stop "Aesthetic Diversity"!
Yup! I said it! Companies are focused on on what I like to call “Aesthetic Diversity”. PLEASE STOP! Cure internal systemic issues in your company first, if you want to retain talent from under-represented groups!!! Who is getting glamorous work? Who is getting office work? With glamorous work you have the opportunity to present to executives who can help you take your career to the next level. With office work, you are not being seen. I visited an organization that won many awards for diversity and inclusion, but guess which positions were predominantly held by POC and Women? In the their cafe, as cashiers and janitors. At the VP level only one black female. 👀🧐 I won’t name the company, but wow oh wow!
Unleash World Conference: Amsterdam
I lead a powerful round table talk that I lead in Amsterdam. We spoke about how to create real change in the workplace. I love taking people through an experience and that's exactly what I did! I had a chance to share my work with folks from all over the world and they were inspired. Amsterdam is awesome and the folks that attended my session are change agents.
