Patti shares stories and comments she’s hearing from the trenches – in surveys measuring employee sentiment and what she’s hearing in focus groups – about the need for workplace justice, and the need to create environments that are radically inclusive. She also shares family and other stories to drive home the point that the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion must work together if an organization is authentic about its commitment to make DEI a core business component.
