TMS_S2E17 | Starbucks’ Training Day: A Case For Why Diversity Programs Fail

The Mindfullness Show is written and produced by Josiah Samuel Harry. Music by Josiah Harry, Jr.

S2E17 Show Notes:
In this episode, Josiah discusses the steps Starbucks need to take if the company is serious about restoring its tarnished image as it relates to racial relations. These steps are: (1) Invest in black communities; (2) Diversify executive leadership and upper management; and (3) Actively lobby Congress to pass landmark legislation that will accelerate, protect, and preserve the socioeconomic development and prosperity of the black community.
