Episode 2: Leaning into Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

For the Love of Work logo header

In the middle of a pandemic, the issue of police brutality bubbled to the surface, again. As protests broke out all over the world, they led to a broader conversation about Black lives, Indigenous lives, and the experiences of people of colour. It finally feels like diversity and inclusion for members of historically underrepresented groups is gaining momentum…but it’s just a start. There’s so much more work to be done as workplaces become more and more diverse.

In this episode, we explore how you can contribute to a welcoming environment of diversity, inclusion and belonging. How to identify systemic racism. How to tell if a progressive company is addressing it properly. How to recognize and confront one’s own unconscious biases. And how to be an ally to colleagues from underrepresented groups.
