Reflections on Year One Leading The Diversity Movement

I’ve been CEO of The Diversity Movement for one year, and in that time I’ve had some amazing conversations with clients, partners, and team members.  We’ve grown and we’ve learned, and here are some of my reflections from year one.


Jason Gillikin: Welcome to the Donald Thompson podcast. I’m Jason Gillikin, CEO of Earfluence, which produces this show.  And we’re calling this one, a solo DT episode, Don. How’s it going today? 

Donald Thompson: Going good, man. The DT experience.

Jason Gillikin: Well the DT experience  has included about one year now of leading The Diversity Movement. So congratulations to one year of leading that team. I’ve seen some explosive growth over the last year. And what I want to ask you about on this episode is, what have you learned in a year of running The Diversity Movement?
