Hola, bienvenidos and welcome to another episode of the Latinx Identity Project. This is the podcast where we tell stories for us, and by us. I am your host, Elsa Iris Reyes.
Today we are going to talk about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace, or DE&I for short.
What does Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion mean?
Diversity is the presence of differences among people
Equity the fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while also identifying and eliminating barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed.
Our guest is Jasmin Jimenez, the first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion business analyst at PPG, a Fortune 500 manufacturer of paints, coatings, and specialty materials.
Jasmin plays a key role in accelerating PPG’s DE&I strategy through data, storytelling, and collaboration. She develops strategies that drive empathy internally – and externally she helps inform the world of PPG’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Jasmin is currently attending Johns Hopkins University to pursue a Master's of Science degree in Organizational Leadership. She plans to use her degree to become a chief DE&I officer.
Please join me as we explore Jasmin’s powerful story of embracing her identity and taking on the role of a trailblazer to make the workplace a more welcoming environment for workers of all different backgrounds.
