Episode 18 – “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” with Skot Welch

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) drive change in the workplace, but not every business has success with implementation. In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, host, Rasool Berry, speaks with Skot Welch about the power of building bridges to navigate the waters of DE&I and how our faith—and our business—flourishes when our workplaces reflect the mosaic God has created His children to be.

Summary of EPISODE:

Great minds think alike, or so we’ve been told, but what if different minds help to build better communities, better companies, and even better churches? In this episode of VOICES’ Where Ya From? podcast, international business consultant Skot Welch discusses diversity, equity, and inclusion and shares his passion for creating communities that reflect the diversity that God designed.


Notes and Quotes:

  • “When you have people that are different, you actually have innovation that is stronger, higher . . . . And there’s books written about it. Now, there’s studies on it. Heterogeneous groups are more innovative.”
  • “God loves His mosaic. He didn’t make any of us to be the same. There’s seven and a half billion of us, and yet not even identical twins are alike.”
  • Why don’t we just understand each other’s stories? It makes God smile. He didn’t leave it as an option. He gave it as a commandment, by the way, it’s not optional. We need to get along and we need to act like family. So let’s have the hard conversations. Let’s do the work.
