Miked Up Volume 2, Part 1 – Organizational Diversity
Miked Up is a series of videos where we speak candidly with the brightest minds and most experienced executives in the Georgia business community. Our goal of these conversations is to provide business owners with not only great information from highly respected leaders, but to also bring a local perspective from those in our community to those in our community.

Diversity in the workplace is a priority, but more than that, inclusion and fairness are what need to be emphasized. "Not being racist is Not enough" is a quote that has resonated with us. Businesses should hold themselves to a higher standard than simply the lack of racism within their organization. In this volume of Miked Up we site down with two of the most well respected women in their field to discuss what issues black professionals are facing in the American workplace and what steps can be taken by business owners and employees to make a material difference for the sake of true organizational diversity.
