#020 What does it take to be a good Diversity, Equity and Inclusion leader?
Today on the Diversity Secrets podcast, we hear from DE&I coach, fellow podcaster, and keynote speaker, Ashanti Bentil-Dhue.
Ashanti tells us that if you want to have real impact as a DE&I professional, passion and lived-experience are not enough. Being a DE&I know-it-all either! So what skills do you need to succeed in this job? Well, that depends on the task at hand in the organization you work in… We cover change management, and stakeholder management skills, facilitation and negotiation, among other central DE&I skills.
One thing is sure: to be a good DE&I professional, you need to be self-aware and honest about your own skill-set and demand the external help that you need in order to deliver results!
