Diversify Your Life - The Heartwork and Homework of Justice w/ Dani Coke

The Diversity Gap

Chapter 6: Diversify Your Life - The Heartwork and Homework of Justice w/ Dani Coke Insight: Your ability to cultivate a diverse personal life is directly tied to your ability to lead a diverse team Action: Resist racism and pursue diversity in every area of your life. For today’s conversation I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the one and the only Danielle Coke. You may know her as Oh Happy Dani on Instagram. Dani is an illustrator and advocate whose artwork  and words are all about helping good people become better neighbors. She has been featured on the Today Show, in Forbes, on NBC, BuzzFeed, Alive News, and on USA Today. What I love so much about Dani is that she is able to take complex ideas and even painful experiences and translate them into meaningful creations that as she says, “Speak to the heart of the matter.” She is just so down-to-earth, full of wisdom and joy. And in this conversation, she shares generously about what it looks like to do the heartwork and homework of antiracism in our everyday lives. Episode Transcripts Available Here About The Diversity Gap The Diversity Gap Academy exists to help leaders pair their good intentions for diversity with true cultural change.
