In this episode we speak to Michelle King, author of the book The Fix and former Director of Inclusion at Netflix, about why we need to value difference and focus on the lived experience of every person in an organization to really move the dial on diversity, equity and inclusion. You’ll hear Michelle talk through her model, the 4 Ps of equality, and explain why organizations need to be careful to give people the freedom to live out your organizational values in their own way — rather than having a fixed view of how these values look in practice. Michelle also shares insights on power structures, success archetypes and “the Don Draper ideal”, creating belonging, finding your personal “why” for DEI work, and why racial denial (or denial of any of our differences) is problematic and what we must do instead.
