Ever have one of those days where technology doesn’t cooperate? Well today was THAT day for me.

The good news is that I was 99% of the way through my chat with the lovely and insightful Julia Satov when my computer died.

I’m so glad we had this discussion about diversity and inclusion and I learned so much from Julia.

Julia Satov is the Global Manager of Learning & Inclusion at Kira Systems and she’s trailblazing how companies mobilize inclusion.

With an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, a Masters of Education, a Law Clerk Diploma, Certificate in Professional Ethics and a Certificate in Data-Driven Decision Making, Julia is an internationally published author, a finalist for Ally of the Year 2020 Women in Tech, she has taught business executives at the University of the West Indies on Leadership Agility, Transforming to Thrive and was the keynote speaker for the US National Diversity Sophomore Summit on Diversity as Competitive Intelligence.

Julia sits on the Governance Committee, Board for Ernestine’s Women Shelter, has worked at Centennial College, The Canadian Bureau for International Education, and BMO

We talked about:

  • Julia’s longtime experience in leadership, diversity and inclusion and how she became an expert in this field.
  • How people can begin to have discussions about inclusivity if they are nervous or afraid to “cross the line”.
  • The biggest misconceptions that people have about diversity and inclusion.
  • What makes a good leader?
