Divercity: Episode 14 - A fresh focus on readdressing and reviving the skills gap
In this episode, host Julia Streets is joined by Bukola Adisa, Founder/CEO of Career Masterclass and Joseph Williams, Founder and CEO of Clu.
Together they look at some of the barriers to entry into the workforce for ethnic minorities, refugees, and disabled people and how social mobility could sustain the pipeline of the current skills gap. They discuss perception bias and the impact of microaggressions within the workplace and the positive and negative effects of call-out culture and offer practical tips using a 4D framework to address this.
They summarise with thoughtful and measured suggestions for change and community empowerment to create a workplace culture to enhance the appeal of working within financial services.
