Episode 27: Creating a Culture of Accountability: Insights from Kim Crowder on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism 

Are we ever going to see equity in our lifetime?

Will anti-racism and DEI training in workplaces ever be enough to cause a significant change in the company’s culture?

There’s been constant talk about authenticity and accountability in the DEI space, but what does it truly mean to be authentic? And why is it so difficult to hold leaders and key players in workplaces accountable?

Join us in a very insightful conversation with Kim Crowder, a DEI and anti-racism expert on topics of:

  • Is the word “authenticity” geared toward white people?
  • The connection of authenticity to privilege and power
  • How conformity, compliance, and authenticity affect marginalized communities
  • Challenges and importance of accountability at the C-Suite level for workplace equity and inclusion
  • Equity for marginalized communities and people of color in the context of capitalism
  • How colonialism culture influences people’s experiences and the systems in the workplace
  • Get to know Kim Crowder Consulting
  • How to navigate burnout, set boundaries, and find liberation and purpose in DEI work
  • Assessing anti-racism training in the workplace — are they enough?
  • Seeing Through Different Lenses: Why understanding unique experiences is crucial in DEI
