Kellie Wagner is the CEO and Founder of Collective, a diversity, equity, and inclusion lab. That means she helps companies - and humans - thrive.
Two months ago I called to schedule Kellie this podcast. We were about a month into pandemic times, and I asked if Collective was busy. Were companies were reaching out to utilize their resources? Kellie said no, you could hear crickets chirping. And then world changed again - George Floyd was killed and the Black Lives Matter movement surged - and now Collective has been deluged with more inquiries than in the history of the whole company, and this conversation couldn't be more relevant.
In this powerful episode, Kellie shares why active anti-racism is crucial in the workplace and at home, why trust is a key ingredient, and what allies can do to act consistently with true solidarity.

This is the interview I did with Kellie two years ago as part of my “present & awesome” summit.
Kellie mentioned Mike Brown and Eric Garner as an inciting incidents in the Black Lives Matter movement and personal experience that led to creating Collective.
This is the cartoon I mentioned explaining systemic racism.
