Updated: Mar 1, 2021
We're starting a new journey as Season 5 of Internal Comms Pro: The Podcast. This past year has blurred the professional and personal lives of not only our employees' lives but our own as well. Our first episode brings in two guests to share their change journey in dealing with this blur.
This week, we talk to Edward Ford and Ashley Morgan. They each share the professional and personal journey they had throughout the year and where they are now. We also tackle the issue of how to start and sustain conversations around DEI: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
