Ep. 40: [Listen to Them] This is What a High-Performing Diverse Team Looks Like: According to Black Talent

Welcome to Inclusion and Marketing, the show that’s all about helping you win the attention, adoration, and loyalty of more consumers, especially those with differences that are often ignored by brands. I’m your host, Sonia Thompson, a marketer and someone with a lot of differences. Let’s get to it.

There’s plenty of research that shows diverse teams out-perform their non-diverse peers. Not only do they outperform them financially, but they also are more innovative.

But just because you have a diverse team doesn’t mean you’ll automatically receive the benefits of having one. You have to be intentional about creating a team culture that enables everyone on the team to thrive, and be better together.

In this episode, Black talent share their experiences working in high-performing diverse teams, and offer their perspectives on the environments that existed that enabled those teams to thrive.

And wouldn’t it be great if there were more people practicing inclusion and making more people feel like they belong? I think so. Also, I want to hear from you.
