POC Feb 2022 Discuss, Connect & Reflect
DescriptionJoin us on Wednesday, February 9 for an engaging Discuss, Connect & Reflect gathering! We will dive into an episode of The Argument with Jane Coaston. Our conversation will center around the episode titled, Are Workplace Diversity Programs Doing More Harm Than Good? To debate and explore the efficacy of DEI programs, Jane brings together Dr. Sonia Kang, Canada DEI Research Chair at the University of Toronto, and Lily Zheng, DEI Strategy Consultant, for a thought-provoking conversation.Podcast Description: It’s time to rethink what’s working in the modern workplace and what’s failing. Amid a pandemic that overturned how so many work, increased calls for racial and social justice put a new pressure on companies to ensure — or at least to seem as if they ensure — equality among their employees. Diversity, equity and inclusion (D.E.I.) programs are an increasingly popular solution deployed by management. But do these initiatives do marginalized employees any good? And who are the true beneficiaries of diversity programs, anyway?Find the episode here or wherever you listen to podcasts!
