Building Trust through Authentic Relationships with James Fripp from Yum! Brands

Guest Speakers:
A lack of representation can often be limiting for people of color and minority groups. But by creating space for people of all different backgrounds to speak up and share ideas, we create an environment of support and camaraderie that elevates businesses. 

This week, James Fripp, Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer at Yum! Brands, joins us to discuss the importance of representation, deliberately creating space for everyone on your team, and encouraging accountability by democratizing diversity.
