Ebbie Parsons on Driving Intentional DE&I Change

Over the next several weeks, Stan and Chris will embark on a new miniseries called Demystifying DEI, where we will look at how organizations are approaching the important work of diversity, equity, and inclusion. In this series, we're excited to hear how industry leaders are authentically incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion principles into their organizations, investing in their people to drive change, and the lessons they have learned through curiosity and trial.     This week, we kick off our Demystifying DEI miniseries with a conversation Stan and Chris had with Ebbie Parsons. Ebbie is the Founder and Managing Partner of Yardstick Management, America's leading Black-owned management consultant firm. In this discussion, Stan and Chris dive deep into the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. They explore the business case for DEI, the importance of diversifying your network, and how processes and systems can enable advancements.     Ebbie shares why it's critical that we all drive intentional change across organizations and why it's a marathon and not a sprint. This conversation is rich with actionable insights on how leaders can do the demanding work to develop an equitable society for all. We were really interested in hearing about Ebbie's work with business leaders as we started the Demystifying DEI series of No Turning Back.
