Most corporate workplaces buy into certain myths that can unintentionally keep women and minorities from reaching their potential (even in diverse and progressive companies).
My guest today, Deanna Bass, has codified these myths that keep true equality just out of reach. One of my earliest mentors during my corporate career, Deanna will rekindle your innate confidence that there is plenty of room for you to achieve your professional dreams, and moreover, that you can bring others along with you. To do so you’ll need to challenge some long standing myths, and reveal the reality they’re masking.
Listen now and discover how to be part of forging stronger companies and a more diverse world.
