How Intentional Transparency Builds Trust - Interview with Gabriel Maldonado - EP 31

What’s the difference between being transparent and being intentionally transparent? How can you go about cultivating a culture of intentional transparency with all your stakeholders when transparency is extremely uncomfortable (at first)? Why is this effort worthwhile when it comes to building trust and resilience while reducing red tape and boosting innovation and creativity?

Your hosts Lisa Lambert and Rick Kitagawa dove into these questions and more with Gabriel Maldonado (who might be familiar if you watched or listened to the two-part series on Understanding and Addressing Medical Mistrust).

Gabriel is the Founder and CEO of TruEvolution, a community-based organization out of Riverside, California that fights for health equity and racial justice to advance the quality of life and human dignity of LGBTQ+ people. As a former member of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS under President Obama, Gabriel works to elevate the representation of minority community-based organizations in state and federal policy priorities.

If being transparent has ever made you feel even the tiniest bit uncomfortable or you’re interested in practical ways to build a culture of transparency and trust beyond your organization into your network of stakeholders, then you’ll want to give this conversation with Gabriel a listen!
