Special: How to talk about politics and race in the workplace.
Play • 46 min

Leaders around the world are trying to help their teams navigate an incredible amount of uncertainty. This can lead to a deep sense of frustration about the world, the workplace, and our role within it. That’s why we need to have the courage to have difficult conversations about topics such as race, politics, equity, and belonging.

In this episode, Damon Klotz speaks with Michelle Kim, Co-Founder and CEO of Awaken. Michelle and Damon talk about how to manage a team in times of political trauma, create space for uncomfortable conversations at work, and minimize the impact of uncertainty for your employees.

* Michelle wanted listeners of the show to know that she asked Culture Amp to make a donation to The Transgender Gender-Variant & Intersex Justice Project in lieu of a payment to Awaken for her time today. 

Culture Amp has made a donation of $2500 to the TGI Project and we want to thank Michelle for her leadership and generosity.
