Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with Colin C. Thompson

The one of the great questions posed to me was: ‘if an organization implements Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs, what could possibly go wrong?’

Recently Zen Ase invited me on to be interviewed on her Zennury Podcast to discuss Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and the reality of racism in 2021.  It was a great platform to discuss these, all important topics, with her and her audience.  The dialogue between us on this topic, was very natural, personal, and revealed that there is still a long way to go to ensure DEI programs are not just put in place, but more importantly – are effective!!

DEI initiatives that are due to public relations goals, are doomed to fail.  More importantly, it can lead to mis-trust within the organization.  DEI initiatives MUST be based on the principle that all people can thrive personally and professionally!!

Listen to the full interview and learn more on this topic and think about what you can do to be an ally to DEI!
