057: How Well-Intentioned Leadership Can Go Wrong, and What We Need to be Doing to Create a Truly Inclusive Tech Culture with Jane Yang

You can be the person who speaks up, the person who chooses empathy. No matter the stage of your career – you can be the person who shows a better way!

In today’s episode, I invite the extraordinary Jane Yang, engineer without borders and proud child of immigrants, to talk to us all about a topic near and dear to my heart – inclusion! We discuss the tools we need to build strong leadership that manifests into effective AND inclusive tech organizations, and how we can use these tools right now to start building a better future – together. 

Ready to show up, speak up, and create more inclusivity?

Let’s go to the show! 

I dive into:

  • How people-management and leadership affect each other (and what happens when we effectively combine the two!)
  • The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do to be a better ally for others around you
  • Intention & Impact – the relationship between the two, and how they play a role in toxicity
  • Why inclusivity is talked about so often and how to get into action instead! 
  • The triangle of enablement – and what you can do to tackle toxic employees and culture in the workplace
  • One simple shift you can make TODAY to become a more inclusive ally!
  • And more!
