Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the New Workplace are topics leaders are struggling to solve. If you have been challenged by finding the best ways to answer these tough questions, look no further. In this episode, we dive deep into the realm of DEI.
DEI thought leader and Learning & Development expert Martine Kalaw understands the challenges that Human Resources (HR) executives face in driving DEI in the workplace. Her book, The ABCs Of Diversity, A Manager’s Guide to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the New Workplace makes DEI accessible to everyone in the workforce, including managers. HR and managers are the core groups that can drive DEI since they decide on an organization’s makeup.
Through her company, Martine Kalaw Enterprises, Kalaw incorporates DEI into cornerstone manager development programs and lessens the burden that HR professionals carry concerning DEI, through training and consulting.
The ABCs of Diversity is a primer that offers exercises to help readers recognize and mitigate discriminatory and biased behaviors that are common in management practices such as hiring, promotions, and compensation. The foundational knowledge offered in her book is an invitation for everyone to embrace DEI at the most basic level.
Kalaw’s clients include organizations like Wheels Up, Bank of America, Hogan Lovells USA, LLP, The Howard Hughes Corporation, and Cornell University. Additionally, she’s contributed to TEDx, Huffington Post and has appeared on C- span.
Martine is a graduate of Hamilton College and Syracuse University’s Maxwell School with a Master’s in Public Administration and a focus on Immigration Law. She published her memoir, “Illegal Among Us,” in 2018.
