During the second session of Dimensions of Diversity, the firm’s CDIO, Lloyd Freeman is joined by two guests with powerful backgrounds in Diversity and Inclusion and specifically, the empowerment of black women in the workplace.
This week's guests are Kimberly Reed, Global Diversity, Equality & Inclusion Strategist at the Reed Development Group, and Monique Myatt-Galloway, regional counsel of a federal agency and past president of the Barristers' Association of Philadelphia.
Reed is also a Certified Diversity Practitioner, top-rated corporate and leadership facilitator & trainer, and the author of Optimists Always Win!: Moving from Defeat to Life's C-Suite, available on Amazon.
And beyond her career at the federal level, Myatt-Galloway is also an adjunct professor at Drexel University in Philadelphia teaching Introduction to Trial Advocacy to second and third year law students.
On this episode, the three talk about the significance behind Kamala Harris' election as the first woman and first black woman to serve as Vice President. The discussion is centered on what her achievement means for black women today, and just as importantly, how her election does not mean that the work to increase workplace equity for black women is anywhere near done.
Dimensions of Diversity is a podcast created by Buchanan Ingersoll and Rooney, highlighting diversity in the workplace. Hosted by Lloyd Freeman, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, the podcast features frank conversations with leaders all across the world of workplace diversity.
