S3E5: The Missing Piece in Positions of Power (Humanize Podcast (2021))

In today’s episode, we’re debriefing last week’s conversation with Shiquita Yarbrough, the first Black person to run for city council in Longmont, Colorado. We’re diving deeper into power, ego, and tokenism, why the conversation around these topics is so important, and different ways that DEI work can show up in a business.

We’re exploring:
Why it’s important for us all to understand how each other defines power when in conversation around it
The controversy around Middlesex School and Dr. Nikole Hannah-Jones
Where cancel culture plays a role in the struggle for corporate transparency
The new reality of corporations
Why proper representation in places of power is so crucial, and how it can actually look different than you think
And more!
