Podcast Episode #72: "Creating and Empowering a Diverse Workforce" - an Interview with Sonia Wadhwa

Creating and Empowering a Diverse Workforce

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the talented and insightful Sonia Wadhwa (Chief of Staff and Director of Business Operations, Microsoft), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • We must surround ourselves with others who will constantly remind us of our potential, especially during low phases of our journey.
  • This is especially true for those who sit on the margins.
  • Mentoring is one of the most important things a professional needs especially those who are on the margins and the quieter colleagues.
  • This is how a diverse workforce will thrive.
  • Anyone can be a mentor as long as he/she is one step ahead of the mentee, not just for senior leaders.
  • Be intentional and proactive about seeking out diverse individuals who'd benefit from your mentorship.
  • There is a great power in taking a pause, especially when emotions are running high (agreed 100%!)
