ImpactWayv™, the pioneering Social [Impact] Media Platform, is pleased to announce the release of its latest episode of “The ImpactWayv Podcast Series – Making an Impact,” featuring guest Jeremy Tillman, TrainUp.com and KnowledgeFlo.com Founder and CEO.
ImpactWayv is a healthier and more meaningful alternative to major social networking platforms. It operates as an entirely new kind of digital ecosystem, focused on social good and enabling people, businesses and nonprofits alike to effect, engage in and share social impact on a global scale.
The ImpactWayv Podcast Series pursues this mission by featuring discussions and interviews with prominent guests who are leaders in their respective fields, talking about the most important issues facing society today.
In this episode, the sixth installment of the ImpactWayv Podcast Series, ImpactWayv President and Co-Founder George Dolatly sits down with corporate training and technology innovator Jeremy Tillman to discuss Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the 2022-era workplace and beyond. Tillman and Dolatly address how companies can approach one of today's most important workplace topics so that it's not merely a buzzword or an item to be checked off a training “to-do list.” Tillman explains that DEI is an evolving topic that deserves continuous examination and, if approached properly, can help strengthen institutions.
“It's not something that is going to happen overnight and it's emotional, and so you have to have space for those emotions,” says Tillman. “We're not going to get this [right] tomorrow, but we're on a journey together, and we're going to get there because it matters. We build these communities where the conversations can happen, and learning can happen.”
Among other insights, Tillman discusses the role of “Inclusion” as opposed to “Diversity” as a core value.
“We believe that inclusion is greater than diversity, and I know that's controversial coming from an African American business professional,” Tillman adds. “I want to see more people of color, more diverse people with disabilities, and more people getting opportunities. But if we don't create environments where people are going to be valued, or that are inclusive, then those efforts go to waste.”
In addition, Tillman discusses other aspects of corporate training and culture, the role of technology in the workplace, how businesses are emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, and how his compelling personal background story and faith have shaped his views on these issues and society at large.
“This episode is a fantastic addition to the ImpactWayv Podcast Series,” stated George Dolatly. “Jeremy Tillman is a pioneer in the field of corporate training and one of the essential voices in crafting effective DEI strategies that will help create better, fairer and more productive workplaces. I think our audience will be pleased with our incisive, wide-ranging discussion.”
