Have you ever found yourself frustrated with corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives?
I know that I certainly have, and that’s why I invited Zachary Nunn to join me for a conversation on the Impact Makers podcast. Zach is the Founder and CEO of Living Corporate, – a diversity, equity, and inclusion digital media network that centers and amplifies black and brown professionals in the workplace through narrative storytelling. He’s has been on quite the journey – from starting his career as an HR Manager at Target to launching Living Corporate as a side project, and following the tremendous growth and reach of the media company that has blossomed from those efforts, to making that his full-time job.
I’ve long been a fan of the content that Zach and his team have created over the last five years, and as an entrepreneur, I’ve also been fascinated by how something that began as an idea became a single podcast – then a vibrant network of podcasts, web shows, blogs, and more – all while Zach was working full-time in leadership roles in HR, change management, DE&I, and strategy and growth for several large organizations.
I’d like to invite you to listen in as we explore the significance of authentic conversations and the impact that they can have in creating a more inclusive workplace. Zach will also reveal the exciting new plans for his future, which include making Living Corporate his ONE job – instead of a second job. He shares about developing a learning platform using AI technology, providing organizational assessments, and launching the Living Corporate Collective – an online space for those who are passionate about workplace fairness to collaborate for systemic change.
Get ready to be inspired, challenged, and motivated to take action. Whether you’re a people leader, a diversity advocate, or an aspirational ally, this episode will leave you better informed to make a positive impact in your own community by creating spaces where all voices are valued and can be shared and heard.
