Each show provides listeners with an opportunity to learn about diverse leaders, trailblazers, and risk-takers pioneering a more equitable and inclusive world by centering a wine-full and mindful conversation around their experiences, challenges, achievements, and efforts to address the lack of diversity and inclusion throughout industries that have historically and systemically capitalized on their labor without equal representation.
