Manage episode 263553826 series 1685457
Whether it's the rainbow ceiling, the glass ceiling, or the race ceiling...diversity and inclusion is here to shatter those ceilings. No longer is it acceptable for any place of work, or on the planet, to not be inclusive and diverse...even in our own LGBTQ Community.
Bearing his pride flag as an LGBTQ equality workplace advocate, John Volturo helps us kick off Pride month with a look inside why Diversity and Inclusion are still hot topics, and not just for the LGBTQ community. Truths, insights, and ideas for how to be comfortable in the discomfort of creating a diverse and inclusive work culture.
