Description

Stacey Gordon is such a fascinating and inspiring person to talk to, and I'm so excited for you to listen to today's episode. She is the founder of Rework Work — a company that focuses on reworking how companies recruit, hire, and engage women and professionals of color. Apart from sharing her journey as a young kid who wanted to become a recruiter,  a judge, and now running her own business, she also shares novel tips on getting hired and hiring the right people. She also talks about her book and the process of writing it, which to me was pretty interesting. You can unearth so much from today's episode, so make sure you tune in.

Stacey Gordon is focused on improving workplace cultures, and her mission is to reduce bias in global talent acquisition and management. As a LinkedIn [in]structor, she offers diversity, inclusion, and career-related online courses, which have been viewed more than 1 million times.

Her book 'UNBIAS: Addressing Unconscious Bias at Work' is the next step in my vision to make all the difference in the world. Drawing on decades of experience and research, UNBIAS is an ‘action manual’ for you to remove barriers and ensure equity throughout your organization.
