Episode #378 of Build a Better Agency Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.
Diversity in the workplace is the cornerstone of running a modern and successful agency. Without it, you’re not only selling your agency short, but you’re also passing up on an immense pool of talent and ideas that you won’t find by staying in a comfort zone.
This week, we have Dr. Ella Washington, a professor, organizational psychologist, and DEI expert, on the podcast to share the purpose, pitfalls, and progress behind effective and measurable DEI work. Whether your agency has fallen behind the times or you just need a fresh perspective, we all have work to do in this area.
So, take this episode with an open mind, actively listen to it, and use it as a guide for refocusing your DEI efforts in 2023.
