Meet Mark Benton. Mark is vice president of talent management and development at the healthcare giant McKesson. As a Black man, Mark has a valuable perspective on how to create more inclusive workplaces.
Indeed, if your organization is like most, you are probably continuing to rethink your approach to inclusion, diversity, and equity plans. But as Mark points out in a recent conversation we had, inclusion isn’t just a corporate program or someone else’s challenge to solve. It starts with individual decisions and behaviors.
Mark and I also spoke about:
- The role you can play in including others
- The importance of having people different than you in your circle
- Whether unconscious bias training actually works
- Empathy for those who feel like the only one in the room
