Join us in a conversation with Dr. Tania Saba as we discuss diversity in the workplace, addressing many perspectives, layers and complexities. Most workplaces are wanting and looking to increase diversity in their workplaces but still the pathway forward is unclear. Dr. Saba guides us through the main areas of challenge she sees and addresses many lenses of diversity that require consideration to move the needle past discussion and into action.
