After a long weekend of selling cookies (seriously, over 2 days, we spent 8 hours at Wal-mart & 2 hours at Runnings. Tired doesn’t begin to cover it!), Rocky & I hit our favorite craft beer tasting room with some cookies to pair up (always good). So I was able to participate in this wonderful Twitter chat with a beverage & many cookies. It was a phenomenal conversation! Sarah Morgan is a great partner to have these conversations with so Jon & I were thrilled to have her along for the ride. I’ve got a few highlights below, and you can see the full conversation here.
We started by sharing our intersecting identities and I loved seeing how everyone interpreted the question. I think that is the key about the question – there is no right or wrong. I know my identities change based on the day, the conversation, those I’m with. It is good to understand how you are approaching a conversation or another person.
We talked about what Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) means.
We talked about challenges organizations face when it comes to DEIB.
