Jeff Joseph, President of the Software & Information Industry Association, discusses why SIIA decided to be a vocal participant in the national conversation around racial injustice and what it means for SIIA members.
Joseph describes social issues as business issues and discusses how associations must work towards an inclusive, supportive environment for employees of all identities. He advocates for “having a conversation with membership and leadership not to guess what they need, but to talk about issues around diversity, equity and inclusion.”
Stay tuned for our second conversation with Jeff Joseph, where he will share how to discuss racial injustice internally.
