Play • 39 min
As the New York Times best-selling author, Brené Brown says, "Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage."

In today's cultural and work environment, we're no longer capable of avoiding sensitive and pressing issues, but many leaders are paralyzed by the fear of making mistakes in the way they address them. This is especially true when it comes to addressing concerns around diversity, equity, and inclusion.

That's why, in this final episode of season 3 of Quality Sense, I'm so pleased to share my recent conversation with a leader in the DEI space. Ash Coleman has had a very unique and interesting career path that has led her to her current role as the Head of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Credit Karma. Before that, she was a professional chef and then later, she got into testing. These professional experiences have led her to understand what goes into making amazing experiences and products that meet the requirements for a diverse population.

What I enjoy about this conversation is that Ash breaks down some of the most simple things you can do as a colleague, leader, and just as a human being in your daily life to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion that will make a positive impact.

Episode highlights:

- Why the role of quality engineering helps companies be more inclusive
- Pros and cons of having a distributed team and its impact on diversity
- Reverse discrimination, racial and gender equity in the workplace
- How important representation is at work and its impact on employee retention
- Three simple ways individuals can help promote DEI
