Episode 91: How Generational Diversity and Racial Equity are Getting Companies Future-Ready with Raven Solomon

This month, the Business Resilience DECODED Podcast will be focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Avoiding this important topic and all the critical conversations around it means accepting risk in our organizations, so in this episode, Raven Solomon is guiding us through generational diversity to support and recruit employees of all ages, as well as how racial equity is preparing businesses for the future.

Raven Solomon is a global diversity, equity, and inclusion thought leader and nationally recognized keynote speaker who helps organizations get future-ready by understanding generations, racial equity, and their intersection. Raven’s mission is simple – to solve for racial inequity by breaking down generational and racial barriers in the workplace, replacing them with empathy and synergy that fosters productive working relationships, drives business results, and prepares organizations to compete in the not-so-distant future.
