We’re thrilled to announce the third season of HR Labs, a podcast that explores how to create a better employee experience for all of your people. This season is hosted by Cornerstone’s Chief Learning Officer and VP of Organizational Effectiveness Jeff Miller and Chief Diversity Officer Duane La Bom. Through conversations with change-makers, activists, executives and experts, they’ll explore strategies for taking diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) initiatives from intention to action. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you listen.
Following the social justice movements of 2020, many organizations pledged to recommit to their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts. But although the business case for diversity and inclusion is stronger than ever, many organizations are still struggling to create a truly equitable and inclusive environment for employees, clients and partners. And in the wake of COVID-19, research finds that diverse populations are still struggling disproportionately: Only one in six diverse employees feels more supported now than before the pandemic.
We know that learning is a critical part of growing and driving change. That’s why we’re sourcing expert voices to share actionable strategies and tactics to help companies make good on their commitments and lay the foundation for years to come. This season, we’ll explore a range of topics—from pay equity to microaggressions to belongingness—and hear from icons like Lilly Ledbetter, specialized experts like Dr. Ella Washington, forward-thinking executives like Lorraine Vargas Townsend and many more.
Check out the trailer to hear more about what you can expect this season. And remember to subscribe to the show wherever you listen to your podcasts to join us for episode one, launching February 3. Together, we’ll build an informed understanding of how best to move DEIB strategies forward to create a better employee experience for everyone at work.

Women's Equality Day: The true power of Amplification in the workplace
The 19th Amendment of the US Constitution, ratified in 1920, ensures voting rights for everyone regardless of gender. And in 1971 (51 years later), Congress designated August 26 as Women's Equality Day. The right for all people to vote and Women's Equality Day came into being because women and their allies amplified their voices.
