Our guest in this episode is Michelle Gadsden-Williams, award-winning global diversity executive, author, activist, producer and philanthropist with more than 25 years of experience as an advocate for equality within corporate America and a thought leader around diversity and inclusion. Michelle is a seasoned diversity practitioner with experience working in the consumer goods, pharmaceutical and financial services industries before transitioning to professional services in 2017. She is the author of the award-winning book, CLIMB, a professional playbook offering guidance to women in the workplace.
We connected with Michelle as we wanted to hear her perspective on the topics of talent management, careers and inclusion and diversity. In our conversation, we talk about what attracted her to the field of diversity, her advice to a college student, the role of mentors and sponsors, her most challenging career transition, and how the journey of inclusion and diversity has evolved over the years.
