James White on Anti-Racist Leadership: How to Transform Corporate Culture in a Race-Conscious World
Manage episode 333131166 series 2850782
In this episode, Dustin talks with James White about his book, Anti-Racist Leadership: How to Transform Corporate Culture in a Race-Conscious World.
You'll discover how building anti-racist leadership is more than just “the right thing to do” – it contributes positively to successful operations and a strong bottom line. James and I discuss why "cultural fit" is often misunderstood and misused to allow perpetuation of an elite, privileged in-group and leave out minorities who may be equally qualified. James shares why DEI is not a zero-sum game and why the very nature of how we run our companies, and of capitalism itself, is changing, offering listeners a rare look into how to meet this demand for change successfully.
James White asks all of the hard questions – and at the same time, delivers answers. Listeners will appreciate practical solutions to achieving their diversity and inclusion goals in one of the best leadership books I’ve ever read.
