Play • 20 min

Welcome back for episode 2 of the SnackWalls Podcast.

In this episode, we talk with one of my favorite local conduits for change Lean Chukoskie.

Leanne shares that there is plenty of diverse talent available, but in order for companies to find the diverse talent they seek, they will need to do things differently - including looking in different places and changing the hiring practices. Also, factoring retention into the strategy, employers will have to take a serious look at the workplace culture and determine if the culture supports diverse new employees for the long term.

Leanne is a trained neuroscientist and an associate research scientist at the Qualcomm Institute, UC San Diego. She is also Co-founder and Chief Science Officer at BrainLeap Technologies.
