The Intersection

If you and your organization are ready to do the work, it’s time to take action, and on The Intersection Podcast, we’re going to be wrestling with the HOW of creating a company culture that truly embraces diversity, equity and inclusion. There are three key principles we’re going to be using on this journey: Educate - better leaders are more informed and aware. Act - You need community and support as you create change in the workplace. Change - you're going to see the fruits of your labor and create sustainable change.

You can’t do this work alone and no one else can do it for you. Let’s do it together. This is The Intersection Podcast, and I’m going to be talking to experts from across industries to find out how they’re changing their workplaces and creating cultures where everyone can thrive.
