Good Enough Now with Diversity Expert, Jessica Pettitt

Best of 2020 Good enough now Jessica Pettitt on Authentic Living with Roxanne Derhodge

We’re all Good Enough Now and we’re thrilled to share that this has been our most popular and downloaded podcast of 2020. With all that’s happened this year, the need for kindness and understanding is more important than ever…especially with ourselves! Listen and take action as Jessica Pettitt leads you down the path to understanding that you are good enough to make the changes you seek. Challenging long held assumptions about the type of people who drive change and are successful, Jessica eradicates excuses and provides strategies to communicate openly and actively seek success.

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.

She has traveled and lived in a variety of communities and environments, while also engaging with education as student, teacher, administrator, and active community member. Jessica uses her take on life to lead participants through a safe but confrontational process of examination, self-reflection, and open dialog that is as challenging as it is rewarding.
