Coronavirus: Workplace Diversity Part Two
If the pandemic has acted as an accelerant to business trends, it has also become an accelerant to inequality.Last year, before the onset of coronavirus, the Census Bureau found income inequality was at its highest level in 50 years, with two-thirds of the total wealth in the country owned by the richest 5-percent.Meanwhile, 4 out of 10 American adults said they would have difficulty covering a $400 unexpected expense, more than 38 million Americans are living in poverty, and more than 14 million children went hungry last month.When discussing these facts and figures, it is important to remember that there are people behind the numbers.To do a deeper dive with us on this topic, we're joined by Dane Holmes, co-founder and CEO at Eskalera, a diversely founded company, committed to providing employees and managers with the knowledge and skills to build a more inclusive culture and helping organizations drive systemic and sustainable change.Have a money question?
