A few weeks ago, we had the privilege of recording a podcast episode with Nika White.  Nika is just a fantastic person!  She is a speaker, writer, and Diversity and Inclusion influencer.   We recorded a meaningful episode about what companies should do during this pandemic as it relates to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  It was great, and I hope you listen.

To listen to the full podcast, click below:

We began our episode by Nika asking a simple question of both Steve and I.  She asked, how are you?  What a simple question?   However, how often do we ask that question, never truly taking the time to listen to the answer?  The podcast continues as we discuss meeting our employees with Empathy and Compassion during this insane time.  How true that seems today!

On the heels of yet another tragic death, and a nation suffering from not just a pandemic but from decades of injustice, discrimination, and inequality, have we stopped to ask our employees this simple question?  Once asked….listen! 

Steve and I are grateful you have taken time today to listen to our podcast.   This is an important topic and one that deserves significant time and attention.   I hope you stop today and ask your family, your friends, your employees—how are you?
