What you may have missed in season 3 of the HR Labs podcast

Cornerstone Editors

AUGUST 11, 2021

We're working on a new season of the HR Labs podcast, so we thought we'd give you an easy place to catch up before the new season starts. And this is that place.

What is HR Labs?

HR Labs is a podcast that explores how to create a better employee experience for all your people. You can listen to it right now on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts.

In season 3, hosts Duane La Bom and Jeff Miller talked to industry leaders about today’s most critical business topic — diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB).

Most companies have prioritized their DEIB strategies, but the challenge is taking those plans and good intentions and turning them into actual results. Together with their guests, Duane and Jeff lead conversations about meaningful ways you can create a more equitable workplace for everyone.

In case you missed the episode or are wanting to relive the season, here is an episode breakdown:

Episode 3.0 – What is DEI and B? And why is adding the B so important?

What do we mean when we talk about DEIB? In this bonus episode of Season 3, HR Labs hosts Duane La Bom and Jeff Miller chat with Cornerstone thought leader Jeremy Spake about what DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging) really means, and why adding that "B" is so important.

Their conversation sets the stage for upcoming episodes where Jeff, Duane and invited guests explore how to turn your DEIB strategies into meaningful actions and outcomes.

Episode 3.1 – Recognizing and defeating unconscious bias

What are you doing to overcome unconscious bias?

In this first episode of Season 3, Torin Ellis, diversity strategist, author and co-host of the Crazy and The King podcast, joins Jeff to discuss what you can do in the short- and long-term to address and defeat unconscious bias. Torin’s short answer? Be a better human.

Episode 3.2 – Responding to micro (and not so micro) aggressions

Microaggressions are indirect, subtle, or unintentional things people say or do that discriminate against members of a marginalized group.

In this episode, Dr. Ella Washington joins Duane to discuss microaggressions in the workplace, their damaging impact on building a culture of belonging, and how and when to respond to them.

Episode 3.3 – Ensuring equal pay for all

"We’ve not overcome the perception that women should be paid less because they need less," says Lilly Ledbetter, activist, the namesake of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and this episode's guest.

She and Jeff sit down to discuss her fight from undervalued Goodyear manager to pay equity icon. Along the way, they discuss how to negotiate salary, equal pay for equal work, how companies can make swift, effective change and so much more. This is a conversation not to miss!

Episode 3.4 – Engaging white men and middle managers in DEIB​ strategies

In this episode, Duane sits down with sociology professor Don Tomaskovic-Devey Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Dr. Tomaskovic-Devey researches the causes of workplace inequity, and he and Duane waste no time getting into it.

According to Dr. Tomaskovic-Devey, "There's a disconnect between where the work normally gets done and the [company's] diversity and inclusion agenda." This episode is all about why that is, who is dropping the ball and what we all can do to help solve it.

Episode 3.5 – Technology’s role in eliminating bias

"The primary thing we're trying to understand is, from a soft skill holistic perspective, what are you best suited for in the world of work." That was Frida Polli, Ph.D. and CEO and co-founder of pymetrics, a company mixing behavioral science and AI to build fairer workplaces.

This week, Jeff and Dr. Polli discuss how you can use data and technology to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) efforts and remove unconscious bias from your organization’s hiring process.

Listen on Apple or Spotify.

Episode 3.6 – Building a culture of DEIB 24/7/365

In the season 3 finale of HR Labs, Duane is joined by A Cloud Guru's chief people guru Lorraine Vargas Townsend to discuss what belonging means, what it looks like at work, and the positive impacts it has on people.

As Townsend explains, “Belonging is not a diversity metric." Rather, it's an intentional practice of celebrating people and helping them prosper. Take a listen to learn why adding belonging to your DEIB strategy is critical to driving engagement, retention and outcomes that matter.
