Ask a Straight Guy / Ask Two Queer Women of Color

This is our second episode in our special “Ask a…” series – “Ask a Straight Guy and Ask Two Queer Women of Color”.

In this series, we ask uncomfortable questions around all types of diversity and initiate courageous conversations that allow us to break down barriers and find aspects of connectivity as people. The straight guy is Jason Gillikin, CEO of Earfluence, and the two queer women of color are Adrienne Michelle and Brittany Glover from Intersections. In this episode we discuss pronouns, being in a safe space (or not) in the workplace, how the media portrayal of queer has progressed the conversation, and when children should be learning about gender identities.

Diversity Beyond the Checkbox is hosted by Donald Thompson, Diversity and Inclusion Consultant and CEO of Walk West in Raleigh North Carolina. For more information including the online course, head over to TheDiversityMovement.com. Podcast production by Earfluence.
