In this episode, Mita and I discuss the myths she’d debunking in her new book “Reimagine Inclusion: Debunking 13 myths to transform your workplace like:
Myth: I always allow everyone to speak in meetings. Of course I am an inclusive leader.
Myth: It’s time to have some courageous conversations on race. Let’s ask our employees of color to leader them.
Myth: I’m all for diverse talent. As long as they are good.
Myth: These DEI efforts don’t benefit me. My voice as a white man doesn’t count anymore.
Myth: We aren’t apologizing. People need to stop being so sensitive.
