Ep 079: Leadership & the Race Conversation, Part 2 Dr. David Anderson and David Livermore Ph.D.
Our nation continues to be stirred by racial injustice and social unrest. At the Global Leadership Network, we recognize these universal issues require leaders to step up and engage. Research shows increasing diversity on teams and in every sector of society improves productivity and morale, adding value within organizations. In this episode of the GLS Podcast, we asked Dr. David Anderson and Dr. David Livermore to continue their conversation on racial and cultural intelligence. They explore the tough topics—institutional racism, the efficacy of protest, the concept of reverse-racism and what you can do to lead with truth and grace in this cultural moment.
