Re-Imagining Equity in the Workplace w/ Michelle Kim

(S3, EP 4) Michelle Kim joined in for this week's episode as part of Season 3's theme, "Where Do We Stand?".  Michelle is a queer social justice activist, and is currently the CEO of Awaken, which provides interactive DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) workshops for a number of leading tech companies across the US.  She talked about the barriers that BIPOC employees are still facing with their employers, and what companies are failing to do in addressing the systemic racism and micro-aggressions in their work culture.  She spent time breaking down where DEI initiatives fall short, and how companies must use best practices to dismantle white supremacy in their environment.  Please check out this episode for more on my discussion with Michelle.   Recorded: July 10th
