In our first episode of the new year, we interview Rebecca Aced-Molina and Sherri Pittman about their important work and leadership on issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. We talk about the role that corporate leadership plays in helping move DEIJ processes forward, considerations for starting this work no matter the size of your business or organization, community-building across race and class, and the importance of LOVE at the core of the work. All this and more — tune in!
