SupplySide West podcast: Diversity without inclusion is meaningless

Companies that want to benefit from the many voices of its employees must foster a culture where everyone feels heard

Diversity in a professional setting is necessary, but it does little to affect a company’s processes if people don’t feel included. In this podcast, Renee Beall, senor marketing managing, DSM, talks about the importance of the relationships that develop and work, and how a positive company culture helps improve innovation and products. With Rena Cohen-First, regional director, western region, the Wright Group, Beall, discusses:

  • How the food, beverage and nutrition industry’s nourishment of its consumers plays into women’s intrinsic strengths.
  • How companies that are purpose-driven motivate employees who are more likely to bring their best selves to work.
  • How everyone can be a leader, no matter their title, if he or she focuses on challenging and uplifting coworkers.
