On today’s episode of Hear Me Out… if you need a Chief Diversity Officer, you’ve already failed.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) trainings are reaching ubiquity in pretty much every American workplace. There’s no doubt that discrimination, harassment, and sequestering—on the basis of sex, sexuality, gender, race, age—all of that exists.
