In the United States, we have always lived with the history and realities of racism.

Whether we have lived with it as an active part of our life or have had the privilege to ignore it and deny it, it has shaped our understanding of our country and each other. 

Since racism has always been a loaded, hot-button, triggering topic to discuss, many leaders have flatly avoided talking about it. Since the summer of 2020, however, organizations are realizing that this issue is not going away.

Workers want organizations that are inclusive and equitable. As such, the avoidance strategy that has allowed leaders to manage this issue in the past is emerging as the biggest problem of all.

Fortunately for all of us, Gena Cox has taken the time to think deeply about how to open the door to these important conversations.

Listen in for compassionate, insightful, and practical advice to help all of us navigate conversations about creating inclusion in the workplace.

Gena Cox knows what she wants from her Great Work: She wants workplaces where everyone can feel comfortable and at ease so they can thrive at work. 

Everyone benefits from this, and fortunately for all of us, Gena has done the hard work of figuring out HOW to do this in the complicated context of the American workforce in 2023. 

Avoiding the topic of race has gone from being the only strategy most leaders would have the courage to take to the biggest problem of them all. 

Listen in as Gena Cox brings empathy, understanding, and practical advice for leaders willing to do this work for the benefit of their company and their workers.
