#06 | How To Truly Be an Advocate of Diversity.
Communication is tough today since language is full of nuance and when you want to be an advocate of different genders, races, and ethnicities it can be challenging at best.

That lens shapes how we think and perceive the world and the inherent actions we decide to take. Unless those lenses are examined and re-examined, it may be impossible to shift consciousness.
Join me in exploring with tangible steps how you as a leader, leading a diverse employee base who want to have a workplace that demonstrates equity, take impactful actions that match your positive intention.

Employee recognition is the key to literally transforming employee retention, well-being, and profitability.

From a survey of 1700 employees, 69% said that even better rewards and recognition would encourage them to stay.
