Diversity, Inclusion, and CAI’s Ally in the Room

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) should go beyond a generic statement on your “About Us” page. So how do you weave it into the culture at your organization? 

On last week’s episode of Talent Experience Live, we spoke with Derek Herman, Director of Communications and Melissa Michael, Executive Director and EEO Officer, from CAI about how they foster inclusivity, belonging, and change within their organization. 

Herman and Michael also talked about their internal podcast, Ally in the Room, which celebrates their employees’ unique personal stories. If you missed this mini masterclass on innovative ways to ingrain DEI in the workplace, check it out below, or read on for the highlights. 

You seem to have strong executive buy-in for Ally in the Room. How has that helped the podcast be successful? 

According to Herman, securing top-down support at the outset was pivotal to the success of Ally in the Room. “That’s exactly how it’s survived and thrived – because we have this executive buy-in to understand that [DE&I] is not just a nice thing to do … it is the right thing to do.”
