How do you design systems for inclusion? We all want inclusion and want to work for a system that is inclusive, but in the workplace we are run by policies and procedures. These systems may have thought they were inclusive but what is the reality? Do you feel empowered at your job? Do you feel that you are involved in decision making?

Today I’m joined with Suzie Lewis and we are diving into how to build systems for inclusion. Come hear how you can be part of the change your workplace culture may need.
