Why Organizations Should Care About Belonging, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

It’s time for another episode from the “Leadership in the Labor Shortage” series (also known as “No Suits, No Slides”), and I’m pleased to be able to join the conversation again. We filmed this episode while in Las Vegas at the UKG Works conference last month.

This time around, I join Workforce Institute advisory board members John Frehse, senior managing director at Ankura, and Sarah Morgan, chief excellence officer at BuzzARooney, LLC, as well as the returning Shawn Miles, senior managing director of social impact and community engagement at Ankura.


In this episode, we discuss why organizations should care about belonging, diversity, equity, and inclusion — beyond just doing the right thing for their people, and society as a whole. We talk about how organizational diversity should be a “must have” — not a “nice to have” — for every organization, no matter the size or industry. This is a crucial conversation that we must continue to have, as we all take action to make meaningful differences for people everywhere.
