In the latest episode of our HR on the Offensive podcast, host Chris introduces the topic of tokenism and welcomes fellow LACEr, Bosede Adekola and guests from the Clear Company, Corinne Crosbourne and Maria Baggio, to discuss this important issue. Bosede shares her background and why she thought tokenism was worth discussing. She explains that her interest in the topic stemmed from her previous experience in an organisation where impostor syndrome was common among minority employees. She believes it is crucial to address these concerns and support organisations facing similar challenges. Two significant impacts of tokenism are reduced morale and a negative perception of DE&I efforts. Listen now to learn how you can address tokenism and how to avoid its detrimental effects on individuals and organisations.
