Recommendation

In the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, leaders across industries were eager to proclaim that racism and other forms of discrimination had no place in their organizations. But lofty words aren’t enough when it comes to creating more equitable work cultures, anti-racism educator Aiko Bethea tells Brené Brown in this follow-up episode of the Dare to Lead podcast. To truly transform your workplace, DEI initiatives must be systemic and frequently reevaluated. Listen in as two sought-after experts offer worthy advice about how to make DEI a continual practice rather than a knee-jerk reaction.

About the Podcast

Dare to Lead is a podcast based on Brené Brown’s best-selling playbook for leaders. Brown is an influential researcher, author and TEDx speaker. Her guest Aiko Bethea is the founder of RARE Coaching & Consulting.

Summary

No employee can do their best work until every employee feels safe at work – and DEI is central to creating a universal sense of psychological safety.

Just as the American with Disabilities Act benefits everyone – because almost everyone will have a short-term condition like pregnancy or a broken leg at some point in their lives – diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) work doesn’t only benefit minority employees. All boats rise together, and all employees need to experience trust and psychological safety to reach their highest potential to create, innovate and perform in the workplace.

No organization is safe – nor can it reach its full potential – until everyone who works there feels safe enough to offer the best of themselves.
