I am so honored to have Fields Jackson Jr on the podcast today. Fields is a thought leader in the diversity, equity, and inclusion space and is currently the Founder and Chief Cheerleader of Racing Toward Diversity magazine, which is focused on showcasing the best DEI work being done all over the world. He is also the Executive Director of the HBCU Business Deans Roundtable, and as such, he has been able to connect students and young people with companies looking to hire. In our conversation, we discuss how we can help those that are on the journey of understanding and providing diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments. And we also talk about the impact of this moment, and the longevity and accountability of the changes we’re seeing around us.
