The 'Black Lives Matter' movement has brought the issue of diversity and inclusion to the forefront of many conversations. Business, big and small, are starting to consider how Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) should impact their workforce.
In this episode of The Agency Accelerator Podcast, I'm excited to have Chico Chakravorty, D&I consultant and Founder of Doing Diversity Differently. In this fascinating conversation (where I learned a lot!) we talk about how to approach & integrate D&I in our organisations.
We also explore how we, as agencies, should be advising our clients on D&I in their campaigns, and the importance of doing so authentically. To bring this to life Chico shares some real-life examples (both good and bad).
