Podcast: a candid conversation about inclusion with Keith Riley

This week’s Candid Comms podcast features Keith Riley, Communications Executive at law firm DWF, and I talking about all things diversity and inclusion related.

As we recorded this episode, we both built the new Everyone Is Awesome LEGO kit, 40516, which celebrates positivity and kindness in families, communities and the world.

This week’s show covers:

  • Working with LGBTQ+ employees to amplify their views and voices
  • What internal communicators need to be mindful of when thinking about diversity and inclusion
  • Why do pronouns matter?
  • Our love of LEGO
  • Why Keith wore make-up at work recently
  •  Why belonging and inclusion go together

and much more.

Do let me know what you think of this episode and don’t forget to rate, review and follow, so other Comms pros can benefit too.

We also gave a a shout out to my brilliant season one guest Amrit Nijjar.

Thank you for such an open and far-reaching interview, and to my Producer Debbie West for contending with all our LEGO noise! Apologies this episode is noisier than usual! It truly is a candid conversation and I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
