Recorded On: 02/23/2022
This is the first in a two-part series about creating an inclusive workplace. The focus of this part is cultural diversity; the focus of the second part (in March) will be invisible disabilities.
In this “So, You Wanna . . .?” episode, Sabrina A. Davis will interview Danne L. Johnson, a law professor at Oklahoma City University School of Law and a co-founder of Our Work, LLC, a collective of highly trained women working on the topics of race, racial trauma, employee engagement, diversity, inclusion, intercultural development, and belonging.
