Actualizing Your Intentions: Empowering DEI in the Workplace

Posted by Deanna Singh | Oct 1, 2020 3:00:00 AM

I am so excited to have the opportunity to speak with Tariq Meyers on this episode and to share our conversation with you. Tariq has spent many years advancing equity and inclusion in the private and nonprofit sectors, served at Lyft and Coinbase as their first Head of Belonging and Inclusion, and recently joined Jumpstart as their Vice President of Strategy. Jumpstart is an example of a company that does DEI very well, and in our conversation, we talk about some of the amazing work he’s doing there, how to bring together companies and recruits that share the same values, and the key steps companies and organizations should take when beginning the work of DEI.

Topics in this episode

  • Tariq’s personal mission of helping others attain their audacious dreams
  • Empowering candidates to land their dream job
  • Getting recruits to shift their focus from large enterprise companies to smaller, yet still very passionate, companies
  • Building a talent ecosystem
  • Helping companies understand and setting goals around, “What does success look like for you?”
  • Creatively thinking around engaging various populations
  • It’s not what we do, but it’s how we do it
