On this episode of the Learning from Smart People Podcast, Kelly Cooper shares how to create an inclusive environment in your organization. With her background in male-dominated fields, she has the insights to explain how to do it and why (and it’s not just because it’s the right thing to do, she explains why it makes financial sense as well.)

Here are some highlights from Rob Oliver’s conversation with Kelly Cooper on the Learning from Smart People Podcast:

· Diversity, equity and inclusion is not a women’s issue, it is an everyone issue
· Everyone suffers in a toxic work environment
· Disabilities include both seen and unseen disabilities
· This is more than a “feel-good” investment, there are real financial benefits
· The more views you have within your organization, the broader the audience you serve
· An inclusive environment cuts down on turnover
· It all starts with the executive leadership team and works down from there
· The benefits of a function based job description
· Quick tips for promoting an inclusive environment in your organization
· How do we do this so white middle-age men aren’t always the bad guys?
