DEI is also white people’s work because we created the problems that DEI is intended to solve.
In this episode, I have a meaningful and raw conversation with Beverly Jurenko, a female, white DEI consultant and the owner of Inside Edge Consulting Group. Beverly provides DEI Consulting services, Executive Coaching for leaders learning to embrace inclusion, and Empowerment Coaching for early-career diverse talent. We talk about the state of diversity post the racial reckoning in our country last summer, how she navigates in this space as a white SIS female who’s passionate about doing this work, what it truly means to be an ally, and so much more. I hope you’ll enjoy our very authentic conversation with Beverly.
Don’t forget to leave us a comment below once you’ve listened I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
