Episode 94: Why inclusion and belonging lives outside your comfort zone

What role does your particular comfort zone play in diversity & inclusion in your organization? How do we bring historically marginalized individuals into the C-Suite? We know that diversity brings innovation, however, women and people of color are underrepresented in the board room.

We keep hearing "we don't know where to find them". 70-80% of jobs are based on who you know. However, what does this mean for people who are outside of your normal circle? We like working with people we feel comfortable with - but we only get comfortable if we are exposed.

In this week's episode, Denise Cooper interviews performance coach Denise Conroy for her take on what it will take to get more women, people of color, and other historically marginalized groups leading change in their organizations and in the world.
