Posted by Deanna Singh | Sep 24, 2020 3:00:00 AM

Today we have Torin Ellis with us, who uses his platform as a diversity strategist, published author, and host of Career Mix on Sirius XM, to assist clients in optimizing recruiting efforts using strategies of collaboration, transparency, and performance monitoring. Our conversation kicks off with Torin explaining that he approaches the work differently than other practitioners in this space, and we can see that through our discussion of his core values of love and process. He explains more about what this means on a day to day level, and how he applies his unique approach to making teams, corporations, and humanity as a whole, better.
