We continue our Around the World in 20 Years journey with Akberet Boykin-Farr, VP of Diversity and Social Responsibility at Emerson out of St. Louis, Missouri. At Emerson, we worked with Akberet on the development and rollout of the company’s unconscious bias training globally, which was the beginning of their D&I training. We talk a little bit about the broader and more robust D&I initiatives brought about by that training, and how leadership is taking more of an initiative to promote inclusion on their teams. But what is particularly valuable about this conversation is Akberet’s key advice to practitioners on avoiding perfectionism.
