Today’s guest on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is speaker, author, and inclusion expert Jennifer Brown.

She is the president and CEO of Jennifer Brown Consulting, where she helps leaders drive organizational change and create more inclusive cultures and diverse teams at work. Brown has worked with multinational brands like Starbucks, T Mobile, Walmart, and Microsoft.

As a speaker and author, Brown champions the concept of creating cultures of belonging where everyone can succeed. She is the best-selling author of Inclusion: Diversity, The New Workplace and The Will to Change and her latest, How To Be An Inclusive Leader: Your Role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive.

In this episode, Brown discusses the importance of becoming aware of your workplace’s deficits in inclusion and taking ownership for your role in them. It’s only then that you can learn to move towards becoming an advocate for diversity and inclusion, and create a more welcoming, happy, and healthy culture within your organization.

Questions I ask Jennifer Brown:

  • Why are we seeing a renewed focus on inclusiveness and belonging today?
  • What are the benefits businesses are seeing from creating an inclusive culture?
  • What are diversity dimensions?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How and why unconscious bias still permeates many organizations.
  • The difference between intent versus impact.
  • How to implement greater diversity and inclusion in your organization, step-by-step.
