In this episode, we speak with Dr. Nika White about how you can become intentional about inclusion in the workplace. Nika’s approach to Diversity & Inclusion is not the typical discourse of D&I is important because D&I is important, instead she sees being “inclusion minded” as a leadership competency that everyone should exhibit. Nika truly unpacks what it means to be an intentional inclusionist and offers strategic ways you can rally for an inclusive work environment.
