Cultivating an Inclusive Culture Where Everybody Thrives with Dr. Janice Gassam Asare | DEI Consultant, Author, Writer

In this episode, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Janice Gassam Asare, an expert in diversity, equity, and inclusion, to discuss how we can create a culture of inclusion where everyone can thrive in the workplace!

Join us as we discuss the need for more nuanced programming that addresses the specific needs of women with multiple marginalized identities, and the importance of involving women in decision-making processes and creating accountability measures to address inequitable behavior. Our conversation also explores the role of individuals in creating a culture of inclusion and how to support employees' passion projects and side hustles, recognizing the importance of creative outlets. We also touch on Dr. Janice's book, "De-Centering Whiteness in the Workplace," which explores the ways whiteness is prioritized in workplace systems and structures.

If you’re looking for practical strategies to foster a culture of inclusion where women can thrive, this episode is for you.
