Diversity, inclusion, and equity in the workplace are often addressed in a company’s organizational strategy. Unfortunately, these efforts often feel hollow and fail to bring about change because they are not systemic. In this episode of the Performance Matters podcast, GP Strategies Director of Leadership Development Leah Clark spoke with Lisa M. Gray, Associate Director for Student Diversity and Inclusion at UMBC. Lisa explained why leaders must push past the discomfort to listen, increase self-awareness, self-educate, and have the hard conversations to foster a true culture of inclusion.
