01:35:46
Does the median household rates take into account how many of the family are wage earners? Many single parent households in our families.
Samuel Harris
01:35:48
Question: Do you have any idea where I could go to find a copy of Bank Charter for Freedmen Saving Bank? The current Federal Reserve location is the Site of the Freedman Saving Bank, this is our equity unpaid or denied.
Hugh B.M. Bailey
01:36:05
Can the speaker move a little closer to the microphone?
Samuel Harris
01:40:34
I'm on the edge of my seat, in the world of banking, Ms. Nikki Lanier is the Shakespeare of Finance. and Racial Equity...Wow
Kim Gray
01:41:10
If 2045 is a benchmark for the change, how do we educate our children at home and in the education industry, since they will be the generation faced with driving the change forward.
Monique Quarterman
01:41:25
It’s amazing that they’ve started to quantify racial stress in monetary terms in the workplace. How are employers taking and using that information? Are they connecting it with the bottom line, and can black professionals help that process?
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle
01:42:50
I appreciate how you emphasized that D, E and I are all distinct and approached accordingly and that it needs to be paced. It really affirms the directions I am taking, I believe this approach is super important.

01:46:49
agree
Iris Jasmin
01:48:01
I would be interested in hearing more on how to shift from the “right thing to do” argument to develop a better argument to embrace D, E, I in a deeper way.
Busisiwe Hlatswayo
01:48:25
If the fact that the US will have more brown people is the imperative for change, amongst other things that you’ve . How do we counteract the argument that countries like SA where black and brown people are 85% of the workplace but are still marginalised and it’s business as usual, the world is not falling apart.
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle
01:50:09
What has been your experience or approach to navigating those minds that are new to DEI and support the D and I piece but feel that E is a "victim mindset and doesn't support unity"
Monique Quarterman
01:52:08
What was a lightbulb moment for you that you realized an opportunity to make systemic change or complex issues? Who did you seek out as far as helping to reach your goal? How can we support each other to navigate change in organizations?
Hugh B.M. Bailey
01:52:45
Since DEI is a capitalist construct and Black/Brown Americans have such a huge buying power, how do you suggest we use our strong busing power to rapidly promote positive change and improved inclusion in America?
Hugh B.M. Bailey
01:53:33
Correction: buying power to …
Dr. Theoria Cason (She/Her), Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation
01:53:34
Agreed
Courtney Leonard
01:53:39
That Part
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle
01:53:49
Furthermore to my question above there seems to be openness and curiosity to learn but heels are digging on the E part because they obviously haven't experienced the struggles of inequity to see how damaging it is.
Courtney Leonard
01:54:27
Exactly
Courtney Leonard
01:54:43
Black Women would be even more specific
Iris Jasmin
01:54:56
Agree
Dr. Theoria Cason (She/Her), Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation

Freedmen Bank in D.C., it was set up by Congress in 1865
Melloney Campbell

Thank you so much for this incredible insight and info. I’m tuning in from Canada and realize our parallel here is not quite the same but relates on many levels as D&I is still new for many companies

Exactly. Because Black history is central to the narrative of American history. The system of free labor as a result of slavery is why USA was able to become the economic powerhouse that it is today
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle
02:16:29
People always talk about cultural competencies training but before that cultural comprehension needs to take place.

Facts, lots "rabbit holes" so to say and Layers to DEI work.
Marcia Barry Smith
02:29:33
Want to share this : Slaves weren't brought here from Africa! Black people were brought here from Africa and forced into slavery. We must reinforce that in discussions around remediation and historical but current issues.
Lettie Bailey-Johnson
02:31:53
That's right, break that thing down!
Kim Gray
02:32:43

👏
Dawn Watts
02:34:11
To make the greatest impact, companies should practice implementing policies and practices that advance equity goals and guard against the influence of potential individual biases. Companies should also aim to increase their spending with minority/women owned suppliers.
Denise Kaigler
02:34:28
Thanks to everyone for being here! BPM appreciates you :).
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
02:34:31
agreed Dawn
Dawn Watts
02:35:01
The focus should be on moving from “making and effort” to Providing Solution based programs that include the following:Strengthening DE&I practices in ALL areas. Recruiting, Procurement, etc
Samuel Harris
02:35:40
With the movement in full swing; Question: How can we using DEI to help create more high growth entrepreneurs with access to capital directly from corporate stakeholders? African American Business owners employ more African American than all of the fortune 500 combine, so ownership is key.
Kim Gray
02:36:05
Good intentions are great but having to survive in the environment may have played into a misconception that the ideal wasn't there.
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
02:41:10
As WE are in this corporate or executive roles we have be intentional in the collective advancement of US in these DEI space. Intentionally seeking out, networking with, reaching out to and bringing in DEI practitioners services into or corporations to empower and amplify our professional and personal experiences to create more equitable, inclusive and diverse work spaces.
Magalie Manuel

Lettie Bailey-Johnson

Say that Dr.!
Johnnie Lloyd
02:44:09
imposter syndrome
Marcia Barry Smith
02:44:40
QUESTION: Please don't ignore the cultural issues embedded in this as well: how do we arrest the movement towards preference of 'other' Blacks ex Caribbean or European Black professionals and the divide this can present to us as a group?
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
02:44:53
Transferable skills are everything in coming into DEI work, there are so many people in this work that come from beautifully diverse backgrounds and bringing that all into the work which is fabulous. I have 15 years law enforcement background (corrections/policing), crisis intervention/mental health and nonprofit executive leadership that has pivoted to corporate DEI leadership.
Zoe Mitchell
02:45:11
it's the language used in job descriptions - gender based language needs to be checked for to encourage women and other marginalized ppl to apply
Kim Gray
02:45:54
@Zoe, you are spot on in the job descriptions using language that is gender and racially based.
Johnnie Lloyd
02:46:37
Absolutely great point - Zoe
Samuel Harris
02:47:06
How do we get more DEI African American C level or greater to make a commitment to do business with African American Independently owned Real Estate Brokerages? When companies relocate, housing and office space is very important and 99% of African American firms in real estate or bypassed...African American real estate professional understand the walk of other African American's better than any other group. We are here www.samjenrealty.com
Samuel Harris
02:47:59
wow...wow..
Kim Gray
02:52:20
QUESTION: In light of the low of employment due to people refusing to work or opting to leave, how do you feel those of us who provide contracted services can succeed in getting the business?
Kim Gray
02:55:26
here here!
Samuel Harris
02:55:32
Outstanding...
Iris Jasmin
02:55:33
Truth! We all need something different.
Kim Gray

End users also need to be at the decision making table.

Zoe Mitchell

Kim Gray
02:59:47
I love the book "How Women Rise" because it covers the ways women discount themselves and gives tips on how to rise above these self-imposed obstacles.
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
03:00:04
And never let an organization be your identity, you should stand alone and in the value you bring and add anywhere
Felecia Henderson (she/her) | Maynard Institute
03:00:36
+1
Denise Kaigler, Co-Founder BPM
03:02:40
Too many of us (women and Black professionals) don’t ask for what we want and what we expect!
Samuel Harris
03:02:57
Dr. Cason, I'm dancing a jig, with the level of intellectual thinking you have engaged with Ms. Bryony... African American Excellence starts with amazing African American Women...
Kim Gray
03:03:01
I love this question Barry. If we could get employees to think like an entrepreneur and marketing themselves to get the job and thrive in the position would go a long way to change the perspective.
Johnnie Lloyd
03:03:08
Say that
Samuel Harris
03:03:11
Love It... Love It
Lettie Bailey-Johnson

Yesss! Support each other! Add value!
Kim Gray
03:05:01
These are the types of initiatives companies need to embrace and make available.
Iris Jasmin
03:05:30
The framing of our ask is important.
Dawn Watts
03:06:05
An ally acknowledges oppression and actively commits to reducing their own complicity, investing in strengthening their own knowledge and awareness of oppression!
Penda Howell
03:06:40
Such an important perspective. Reaching back has to be intentional for us. Love it.

Some of us who are Blacks from other countries have seen both sides of the coin.
Kim Gray
03:12:03
Belonging is so important to feeling valued. Thank you Bryony for mentioning this.
Iris Jasmin
03:12:16
I think when DEI is done right you can get to a sense of belonging.
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
03:13:09
Employee Resource Groups have a GRAND impact on employees and companies, in my opinion it is foundation and important DEI efforts and practices in your company.
Marcia Barry Smith
03:13:12
Brilliant Bryony!
Nikki Lanier
03:14:29
Goals are critically important!
Kim Gray
03:15:18
QUESTION: In implementing the DEI goals, do you find the fear of what will be replaced in order to be successful in meeting the DEI goals?
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
03:15:48
Allyship is important the heavy work shouldn't be done by the people with shared characteristics only
Samuel Harris
03:16:48
I feel like I'm in Executive Graduate school with the Greatest Professors in the world, with real world experiences,,,, Amazing... Amazing..... Never Relax.... Never Stop Improving

Felecia Henderson (she/her) | Maynard Institute
03:22:04
That’s Affinity Bias
Tamara Marsh
03:24:08
How do you navigate through being told it more about relationships not skills when seeking career progression?
Nikki Lanier
03:24:57
Really true. We are always looking for ourselves when we interview and the culmulative impact of seeking Sameness, relatability, predicability, over time, is informed by white social norms and creates workplace cultures that don’t contemplate uniqueness or difference. Its hard when that reality becomes calcified and rigid workplace norms AKA white cultural norms
Zoe Mitchell
03:25:05
yes, "add" Vs "fit"
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
03:25:12
Hire for culture add vs culture fit
Johnnie Lloyd
03:25:24
Great add Mr Callendar
Dawn Watts
03:28:26
Meet with your internal leadership team to speak to diverse suppliers. Help them set their own division supplier participation and target spends. Introduce the business leaders to the diverse suppliers so they can meet and discuss their needs. Having a conversation with business leaders and meeting them personally to have conversations are key to building relationships.
Tenecia Waddell-Pyle (she/her/hers)
03:29:40
Yes Dawn educate and expose the decision makers to the notion and the suppliers
Zoe Mitchell
03:29:40
buying and procurement teams should have targets/quotas to support Supplier Diversity Programs
Johnnie Lloyd
03:30:00
Being a sub contractor can be a value add and open other opportunities.
Dawn Watts
03:30:01
It’s imperative that DE&I and Supplier Diversity Leads are working in tandem to promote entrepr
Nikki Lanier
03:30:13
I think we have to challenge our employers around requiring “certification” for every engagement. The benefit inures to the company because they want credit for the engagement but its extra burden on the supplier to attest their minority status when we don’t require that of white vendors
Johnnie Lloyd
03:30:13

Even in interviewing for these DEI roles be willing to ask the tough questions to find out the company's intention and if they are providing a budget! This a huge and important role to take on and it can cause damage to yourself, others and the company if not properly done.

As an Introvert, building relationships that are genuine and also strategic is a natural way I use to build my network.

Thank you. I was driving and had to stop. 😊. I’ve been told this by mentors and managers. I appreciate their honesty. Things are looking up as I’ve already inquired about special assignments for visibility. I have a 1x1 with my director. I appreciate your insight and I hope you enjoy my hometown of Louisville. 😊

OMG. So true Bryony! Mentorship is almost NEVER the first or second answer to the worry about undervalued minority talent

Key point: Get to know people to find commonalities. That is your binding chemistry.

I have so many leaders who tell me they can’t hold on to black talent and therefore need to get a mentoring program for them. WHAT????!?!?!?!? UGH!!!
