New Matter: Inside the Minds of SLAS Scientists
Leading Across Difference
Show Notes

SLAS recently brought Raven Solomon (a global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion thought leader) in to talk to the professional team about unconscious bias. She made such a huge impact on us that we had to bring her in to talk again to our broader New Matter audience. 

Raven talks to Marshall and returning guest host Karlton Moore about helping organizations get future ready by understanding generational and racial equity. They discuss the need to make spaces more equitable and more inclusive for everyone. What does it mean to find common ground? How do you rumble with unconscious bias? Listen in and learn what a "Led Language" is, strategies to have real conversations and to take a stand to enact change, and how to find common ground and navigate diversity, inclusion, and equity. 

It isn't easy. It takes time. But, as Raven reminds us, Rome wasn't built in a day and she has so much that give her hope as we move toward a greater culture of inclusion and equity. So, how do we become more inclusive? 

Just start.
