Stepping Into Truth: Conversations on Race, Gender, and Social Justice

Episode 6


Tommi Paris

In this conversation Tommi and I discuss the buzzwords of diversity and inclusion, what they mean, and how we can bring those values into our day-to-day lives. 

Tommi Paris is a millennial in corporate America who wants more from the traditional nine-to-five work experience and believes that you do too. By connecting employees’ hearts and minds to business objectives through the value of diversity and inclusion, her goal is to create a place where every employee feels valued for who they are and the evolving talents they bring to the business.

With experience in employee communications, culture, and engagement initiative, Tommi enjoys creating workplace experiences that reinforce workplace diversity as an asset to the business,  honor the richness of our collective histories, and inspire us to be better together by exploring and applying principles of workplace inclusion.
