    The world is getting smaller as access to information gets easier and more readily available.

Jennifer Thompson comes on the podcast to share her tips as an executive manager and public relations professional for aligning organizational action with their values.

    The Truth Hurts, Do Something with Katherine McCord

    38:44

    How many times have you been asked for feedback and then nothing came of it? According to Katherine McCord, leading people first is about servitude and taking action when something is brought up. This is why recruiting, diversity, equity, and inclusion can be so hard, and at the same time is so ripe for transformation. Katherine has been fascinated with recruiting since childhood. She has strong experience recruiting everything from Customer Service to CFOs, and has a background in process improvement and growing employee satisfaction. She founded Titan in 2014 with the dream of innovating hiring, and to help entrepreneurs realize their visions without breaking the bank. She is also striving to improve the hiring process on a national level by spreading good practices and generating proactive conversations via media. In April 2020, she founded a career show, https://www.careerlaunch2020.com/ (Career Launch Live). Katherine and Chris Lin talk about how the organizations need to be revolutionized like the candidate experience, recruiting, and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

    L.E.A.D. - Resumes & Interviews: Greatest Tools of Institutionalized Discrimination

    56:19

    As much as DEI is a current “hot topic” for organizations very few are taking the opportunity to question the assumptions that underpin the foundation of their talent selection process: resumes and interviews. If those tools are fundamentally harmful to creating an inclusive environment, then anything built on them will always fail on those agendas. Michelle Olivier's argument is that until we remove these tools of oppression from the systems we use no real change can occur. #JoinLEAD in this discussion analyzing the efficacy and unintended consequences of resumes and interviews, before finding better options and a new hope.
