Building the Future

Dawn believes that diversity in the workplace is important to the overall health, welfare, and culture of an organization. Great companies understand not only the compliance piece to DE&I but also, having a diverse workforce at all levels in a company will garner better outcomes in all areas of that company’s mission. “It has always puzzled me when DE&I is not at the top of the list when it comes to workplace culture. After the death of George Floyd, the concern for DE&I rose rampantly. We do not live in a society with just one type of individual so why should a company’s employee landscape be such?” She adds, “It saddens me that it took a black man being killed while we watched to make DE&I along with examining cultural biases a priority. Most companies have a long way to go in this area says Dawn.

 I had a client for a year think that I was white due to the way I spoke over the phone, Dawn says. This was the days before Zoom or Skype. He asked me to send a “ me or a you” for a job that I was filling for him.
