Problem Solving or Exploitation? (w/ Neil Edwards)

Neil uses context from a divergent field to illustrate how systems may operate to distract our attention. He takes listeners into the world of environmental justice and the global climate crisis to point out the difference between problem solving and exploitation, and then draws the contrast to the current diversity and inclusion efforts in corporate space. He closes with suggestions on how to test organizational commitment to addressing systemic racism in the workplace.

Check out the two organizations Neil mentioned in the episode, the Earth Island Institute and the Plastic Pollution Coalition.
