Episode 19: Authenticity in DEI: Practicing Transparency and Accountability with Dr. Monica Cox

When it comes to DEI initiatives, is the bare minimum effort really authentic?

And do companies fully understand what they are doing and why they’re doing it?

We encountered a powerful tweet from Dr. Monica Cox, that bravely calls out companies of what they are doing and hoping to achieve with their efforts. And the tweet says:

“Instead of showing me your diversity statement, show me your hiring data, your discrimination claim stats, your salary tables, your retention numbers, your diversity policies, and your leaders’ public actions against racism.

End performative allyship.”

Today, we have Dr. Monica Cox on the show and we are going to talk about the issues surrounding diversity and inclusion efforts and what it takes to have impactful authentic DEI strategies.

Dr. Cox will also discuss:

  • What companies should do if they are committed to their DEI goals

  • The things companies need to change to become more authentic, diverse, and inclusive

  • Why courage and bravery are necessary to shift the mindset of people and push against institutions when doing diversity, equity, and inclusion work

  • The root cause of oppression and how it affected the rights, privileges, and experiences of people of color

  • Understanding the transactional nature of your relationship with work and how you can protect yourself in that space

Dr. Monica Cox is a disruptor, trailblazer, change agent, and leader who believes in living an authentic life even if it makes people uncomfortable. As a coach, she guides clients in areas of career development, business strategy, and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

She’s a Distinguished Professor of Engineering at The Ohio State University and CEO of STEMinent LLC, a brand that houses a variety of STEM education offerings.
