Introductory Episode: Welcome to the INCLUSIVE ENTERPRISE Podcast

Description:

Welcome!

We’re so excited to finally launch The Inclusive Enterprise Podcast and depart for the journey of growing our community… connecting with listeners and guests… and inspiring YOU to drive your personal and organizational growth through diversity, equity, and inclusion.

If you’re tuning in and wondering what this podcast is going to be all about, and what we intend to provide you throughout this podcast, then continue to listen. We all want to play a role in helping our workplace and society to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

But that can be a difficult task. How do you create an environment where our differences are celebrated? How do you change long-held beliefs and biases?

It requires a level of honesty that can make people uncomfortable and cause many to worry that it will lead to unnecessary confrontation. To get there, we have to be willing to have brave conversations that change hearts and minds.

The Inclusive Enterprise Podcast is intended to be that safe space for brave conversations…to connect, share, and grow together.

Our intent is that we inform, educate, learn and develop from this community with content that is relevant and applicable in your work and life – we encourage you to provide feedback from time to time so we can produce future episodes that you’ll value and enjoy!

The podcast features transformational interviews as well as actionable tips and strategies that corporate leaders can implement in their workplaces and careers, to drive profitable growth through diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

3:15 Why we’re doing the Podcast and why it’s so important right now.

5:00 What we want to give you, what you can expect from the show.

6:00 Who are Brian and Charlotte?

14:43 Why becoming an Inclusive Leader is essential for YOU to advance DEI at your Enterprise.

18:20  Preview of Season 1 Episodes – starting with Episode 1 featuring interview guest Judge Glenda Hatchett!

This certainly feels like a time like no other. If we do this season right, we will be able to help and encourage every single listener to become a clear on their ‘why DEI now’, as well as the path forward to become a more inclusive leader.

We’d be honored to be with you, and hope you’ll continue to join us as a community member on a biweekly basis as we leap into season 1.
