“Safety is when the conditions are such where you can feel that you can be your authentic self.” - Kalaya’an Mendoza


We are back with episode 2 of Diversity & Inclusion: Revolution or Reform? Today we are speaking with Kalaya’an Mendoza about generating safety. What does it mean to be safe both individually and within a community? Why is this important and what role does it play within D&I. We work through all of these questions and more.
