A friend who works at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency reached out to me months ago about the good work her leadership was doing to promote honest conversations about diversity and inclusion. This episode should have come out MONTHS ago. But due to scheduling and technical issues, it's coming to you during election week 2020, and perhaps this message is exactly what we all need right now. In this episode, Willisa Donald discusses how her office handled diversity and inclusion before and after the executive order on training, how the DTRA director and Ms. Donald's team facilitated REAL talk around hard issues, and how you can do it in your federal agency/department, too.
