Do More with EDI
Today’s episode focuses on why we need reprioritize and make greater progress on equity, diversity, and inclusion in order to better attract, engage, retain, and get the best out of our people and clients alike.
“Better EDI is a high priority for many in our organizations – especially from the manager level down, and it’s becoming an increasing priority – and even a filter – employee and client prospects are using to evaluate whether they want to work for or with us.”
–Peter C. Atherton, PE
“Without the person in the power position reaching down and creating the conditions for safety and trust, the conversations don’t happen.”
–Peter C. Atherton, PE
