Ooops!! we’ve just cheekily added the f*** word to one of Heather’s life mottos! In this episode the boys chat with Heather Martin from the Chiu School of Business at Bow Valley College about the importance of suitably preparing the next generation of Canadian employees and the need to bring a diverse group of voices to the forefront in business.
Heather has been facilitating groups of adult learners since 2007 in Canadian non-profit and post-secondary environments. Currently, she provides transformative learning experiences that give learners the necessary critical and creative thinking skills to solve complex problems with creative solutions, and become valuable contributors to future employers. In her side hustle (and passion project), Heather designs and delivers entrepreneurial programming that enables innovators to catalyze future growth, improve productivity and competitiveness and bridge the gap between industry and academia.
During the episode Heather and Ken refer to two quotes respectively – “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance®” Vernā Myers, Diversity advocate & TED speaker, www.vernamyers.com and “Diversity is having a seat at the table, inclusion is having a voice, and belonging is having that voice be heard.” Liz Fosslien, Author of ‘No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work’, www.fosslien.com
