An interview with Pamela Newkirk

Between 2014 and 2016 Google spent $265 million dollars to diversify their workforce, but their percentage of black employees remains at 2%. Today on Radiozine, Suzanne LaGrande talks to award-winning journalist, professor at New York University, and author of the recently published book, Diversity Inc, The Failed Promise of a Billion Dollar Business. Some of the topics discussed in the interview include:

  • How the call for greater diversity and inclusion in public and private workplaces became a billion dollar business.
  • Why these programs have overwhelming failed to make necessary changes in workplace diversity
  • The actual solutions that would create real inclusion and true diversity.
