In this episode I welcome special guest Dr. Jade Singleton, co-founder of Johnson Squared Consulting and DEI consultant at NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, to discuss transformational DEI at work: what we’re getting wrong, what we’re doing right, and how we can do better.
Jade shares a lot of personal history, including how her ancestry as a Jefferson-Hemings descendant has influenced her work in diversity, equity, and inclusion, the importance of balancing power and making systemic infrastructure changes in order to achieve equity and inclusion, and the need for organizations to create pathways for folks to advance their careers as part of truly inclusive workplace environments.
In this episode, Jade also shares her perspectives on:
The Sarah Jane Academy: https://www.thesarahjane.org/courses/diversity-equity-inclusion-in-practice. Unlike expensive DEI certificate programs, The Sarah Jane Academy models inclusion and equity through its pay-what-you-can model.
