Show Notes

“You have more leverage than you think, and you probably need more help than you think.” - Dr. Kim Tran

Welcome to episode 4 of Diversity & Inclusion: Revolution or Reform? On today’s episode we are joined by Dr. Kim Tran. Tune in as we discuss Accountability in the DEI space with Kim and hear how she navigates “lag” within D&I, cognitive dissonance within DEI language, as well as how we can think more critically about the true role of Diversity and Inclusion folks and the work they do.
