Episode 329: DEI Series – How Did You Get Into DEI?

This podcast is part of a series on the Workology Podcast focusing on DEI and HR. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are not new ideas in the HR and corporate arenas, but in recent months the importance and significance of DEI in the workplace has gotten leaders throughout corporate America to think about what doing the right thing in our community looks like. For many of us in HR, this means we’re not taking our DEI initiatives to stakeholders – they’re coming to us looking for answers. And we must be ready to respond.
