Dr. Tanjia M. Coleman, who is an organizational and societal culture expert with nearly 20 years of experience working as a senior-level human resources and organization development professional joins Enterprise Radio.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. Tanjia M. Coleman discuss the following:
- Tell us a bit about yourself, what motivates your every day?
- What excites you about the DEIB and Learning Development spaces?
- What is causing you angst in the workplace today?
- Why do you feel women are not acquiring executive level and C-suite level positions?
- What is the biggest challenge facing organizations that want to address DEIB in their organizations?
- The George Floyd verdict came out last week, we remember almost a year ago companies made declarations and commitments to diversity? Do you believe those are being met? How are these organizations being held accountable? What advancements in diversity should we see from them at the one-year mark?
- Why is leadership development for women specifically so important? How do you assist organizations in ensuring that their female leaders are equipped with what they need to continue a positive career trajectory?
TIP: Get to know someone completely opposite of you. The learning will be immeasurable. As humans, we tend to gravitate to those that are most like us, share our values, our experiences, outlook on life, upbringing, age, race, and ethnicity. Data from the Public Policy Research Institute (PRRI) shows 75-percent of whites have an entirely white social network without any minority presence while there is a slight difference for African Americans at 65%, there is a lot of work to be done.
