The workplace today is richly diverse and brimming with people of all personality types. Some we get along well with and others we just can’t seem to gel with. On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Diversity Expert, Jessica Pettitt who will share some of her Good Enough Now ideas about creating a more collaborative environment with those we have to spend our time with each day.
As a College Administrator, Social Justice Training Institute Alumna, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, and a Certified Speaking Professional, Jessica has taken the typical diversity talks to the next level of social justice conversations. She examines privilege, oppression, entitlement, and our collective responsibility to make change while connecting difficult topics with employee retention, crisis management, and increasing innovation and profits.
