Diversity and Confusion

Dr. Brandi

Is our current discussion and hyperfocus on ’diversity and inclusion’ a REAL indication that change is happening in corporate America? Does the feminism movement belong in the workplace? Are African Americans in leadership roles as the token ’face’ of diversity, or do they really have the power to make a difference? And, am I the only one wondering how white men feel about all of this? (stop rolling your eyes...) ​ In this podcast, I’m talking about all of the things we’re secretly thinking when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. As always, I’ll be adding my unconventional insights to challenge the status quo, and expand our thinking on all things DEI. You don’t want to miss it!

S1E5- UnMute White People

Diversity and Confusion

play

02/01/22 • 23 min

While Instragram was designing their infamous "mute white people" emoji, Dr. Brandi created a post on LinkedIn directly asking white professionals to sit down with her to talk about all that's been going on. The experience was NOTHING like what Dr. Brandi expected. In this episode she's reflecting on her conversations with over 50 white professionals from around the world (yep, Ireland was in the building). Plus, learn about how this experience inspired her to launch the "Calling All Allies Project".

Dr. Brandi is calling out EVERYONE who claims they're fighting for inclusion while hypocritically being exclusionary themselves. Oh yes, the "woke wars" as she calls them, are in full effect and you have officially been put on notice if you've been behaving badly in the name of "equity". How about demonstrating some emotional competence? How about showing mutual respect? Those rules still apply and Dr. Brandi is calling people higher, challenging them to ditch the adult temper tantrums for active listening and critical discourse.

S1E2- Tokenism Gone Wild

Diversity and Confusion

play

01/11/22 • 21 min

Corporate America,

If you're going to hire or promote an African American/Black professional or anyone for that matter, make sure that they've been put through a fair and equitable process like everyone else. Your employees can tell that Joe is a "token hire", and will most likely NOT take him seriously. Your motivation for hiring decisions is key.

Sincerely,

Dr. Brandi

In the debut episode of the Diversity and Confusion podcast, Dr. Brandi discusses why the current state of diversity and inclusion isn't as developed as it should be. She discusses why workplaces are becoming more and more uncomfortable, awkward, and even hostile. Finally, she provides some insight into what the rest of the season will entail -- a firm reality check against what she calls "entitled" professionals who bring their personal and political perspectives into the workplace... a place that should be neutral ground.
