Shep Hyken interviews Lenora Billings-Harris, an award-winning authority as a diversity strategist, researcher and author. They discuss race and racism within the workplace, and how leaders and employees alike can dismantle biases within their organizations.
“Diversity of thought allows you to be more innovative and make more money. All the business metrics say that if you have diversity and inclusion in your company, you’ll do better than your competitors.”
“The next step after diversity is inclusion. If you have diversity without a culture that includes people who are different, then you’re still going to make the same mistakes.”
“We’re all imperfect and we’re going to make mistakes. The point is to not wait until you’re perfect, because that’s not going to happen. Lean into the discomfort. If you’re coming from a place of good intention, people will understand even when you mess up.”
Lenora Billings-Harris is an award-winning author, thought leader and international speaker in the areas of inclusion, diversity and unconscious bias. She is a Certified Professional Speaker (CSP) and a Council of Peers Award of Excellence (CPAE) Speaker Hall of Fame inductee.
