The grade you give depends on your perspective

Athena San Diego Executive Director Cheryl Goodman joined San Diego AMA in the podcast studio to discuss the state of diversity and inclusion in corporate America. While much progress has been made on this front, lots more work remains to be done.

Economists, business leaders and sociologists widely agree that having your business reflect more segments of society better equips it to confront the challenges of today’s marketplace. Yet people of diverse walks of life encounter resistance on their journey to the C-Suite. In this podcast, we discuss the benefits of diversity and inclusion, varying perspectives on these values and opportunities for continuing integration.
