In today’s society, many people are pushed aside and maltreated. That’s why Tony Martignetti’s guest today, Dr. Joanne Kamens, has a strong drive to create and support a diverse and inclusive culture. Dr. Joanne is the Interim Executive Director at The Gloria Cordes Larson Center for Women and Business at Bentley University. In this episode, Dr. Joanne shares her personal experiences with gender discrimination. As she moves forward in her call for change, she encounters more stories from silent victims, especially women, who are harassed and maltreated in the workplace. As a result, she’s working on a project called Friends of Sarah, a support group for women who have been harassed or bullied during their science training as grad students. If you’re passionate about supporting a diverse and inclusive culture, you’d love listening to this episode.
