The IVY Podcast


Feb 17, 2021

We’re thrilled to connect you with Dr. Kira Banks for an important and actionable conversation on how we can achieve transformative success through diversity by creating a truly inclusive organization.

In a dynamic discussion moderated by IVY CEO and YPO Metro NY Chapter Chair Beri Meric, Dr. Banks will outline steps to develop a diversity and inclusion strategy that can serve our teams and our stakeholders throughout our careers. She’ll share how organizations should best navigate past diversity related failings and their internal and external repercussions, and how leaders can foster healthy discussions about race in the workplace.

Dr. Banks' approach incorporates extensive diversity work in corporate and academic settings with cutting-edge experience design in order to meet organizations where they are and catalyze lasting change. We’ll discuss what steps leaders and companies need to take to move from statements of support to action that will create lasting change beyond this moment and be felt in the everyday experience.

As a diversity, inclusion and equity consultant working with a wide range of international firms in corporate, non-profit, educational, and community settings for over 20 years, Dr. Kira Hudson Banks is highly skilled at facilitating difficult dialogues and designing customized, impactful, and long-term diversity solutions. She is passionate about helping leaders make every workplace an inclusive workplace and believes inclusive workplaces make for more engaged, productive, innovative, and happy employees—and more successful organizations.
