Episode 236: Going Deeper by Bringing Mental Health and DEI Together—with Ymani Hawkins
Sometimes consultants can make a more powerful impact by bringing together two areas of work that can enrich each other.
In this Craft of Consulting Podcast episode, I interview Ymani Hawkins who has been combining mental health with diversity, equity, and inclusion work as a way of creating healing and change.
In this episode, we talk about :
Combining mental health with the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
Responding to the collective grief, specifically from her community of folks of color
Redefining professionalism and challenging the ways we do work in the workplace
Being focused on heart change and people living out the values
Holding spaces for healing and giving people the space and opportunity to navigate and work out their humanness
Bringing a trauma-informed care lens to DEI
Opening spaces for different dialogues where people are navigating trauma, pain, and discomfort
Starting a new employed adventure and why
