A critical responsibility of CEOs is creating the space for people to be their greatest selves.
If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that companies and the people who make decisions in them have a long way to go in understanding and growing diversity and inclusion.
How can CEOs create an environment where everybody has equal opportunity to become their best selves if they don’t really understand the underlying dynamics that different types of people face?
To find the answer, we talked with Amber Cabral, Inclusion and Diversity Strategist, Executive Coach, and Author of “Allies and Advocates” about how to identify privilege in our own personal lives and how leaders can develop diversity and inclusion strategies at their companies.
What we talked about:
-What led Amber to become a D&I strategist and author.
-The difference between an ally and an advocate, and how to be both.
-How to become aware of privilege and extend privilege to others.
-Tangible steps for moving from awareness to action.
-Tips for intelligently and compassionately engaging in conversations on diversity.
