Have you ever experienced a transformational time in your workplace that demanded agile thinking, new combinations of skills, a higher level of collaboration, and a growth mindset? This week I have Anuradha Mayer of Wind River on the podcast to discuss the importance of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) for any company looking to thrive as we move into the future of work.

In this episode Anuradha and I discuss:

🔸 Wind River's focus on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) as one of their core values.

🔸 The importance of vulnerability and trust in building strong teams and relationships.

🔸 Strategies to address biases in the hiring process, such as diverse interview panels and candidate slates.

🔸 How commitment to healthy, rigorous debate in teams leads to better business outcomes and a culture of trust and collaboration.

🔸 Adopting agile approaches in talent management, including continuous feedback sessions, for better employee development.

Listen in to hear more about how embracing curiosity, a growth mindset, and an openness to healthy debate will strengthen you as a leader, your team as a cohesive unit and your organization as a whole.
