How to make diversity, equity and inclusion a reality at work — not just a mission statement with Torin Ellis
SoundBalming with LaMarr Darnell Shields
Committing to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEI&B) is not about having a feel-good story; it’s not even about being an employer of choice. DEI&B is about the success of your business and, quite frankly, doing the right thing. I sat down with Torin Ellis, to talk about how world is changing and prioritizing having a diverse, equitable and inclusive organization where every employee, at every level of the organization, knows they can bring their whole self to work is key.Torin Ellis describes himself first and foremost in human terms: a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother and an adviser. But professionally, he is also an expert on diversity and inclusion strategy, a risk mitigator and a tremendous speaker. Torin wants us all to take a closer look at diversity and inclusion (D&I) than what we may have heard from training exercises that simply checked off boxes. And he isn’t afraid to challenge people to have conversations that push them out of their comfort zones.Jimmy&Mary's Authentic Body Care Jimmy&Mary's take pride in creating quality handcrafted products for the entire family.Mountain Made Clear Crystal CBD Enhance your active lifestyle with natural blends and formulas...crush life with Mountain Made CBD!Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/SoundBalming)
DEIB Strategist, Risk Mitigator and Speaker Torin Ellis on Prioritizing Belonging and Inclusion
In this episode, I’m really excited to be sitting down with an old friend of mine, Torin Ellis. He’s a diversity strategist, risk mitigator, podcast host and speaker. “I show up differently in the [DEIB] space than anybody else that you are going to encounter,” Torin says. “I'm moving in love and truth in that I'm trying to challenge and agitate individuals to simply do better.”Torin sat down with me to discuss inclusion and belonging, particularly in how leadership can show that their organizations will remain true to their DEIB efforts and how to build an organization that prioritizes belonging and inclusion.
This week on Untapped we sat down with the accomplished Torin Ellis and discussed his approach to tackling DEI, how this work should be focused on promise over punishment, and what the real ROI of DEI is.

Torin Ellis is the kind of person who shows up strong and then just get stronger. From the outset, this conversation forces me to question my understanding of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion by exploring the notion of Belonging. Torin guides me through a shift in mindset and in language as we talk about the power dynamics in organizations today, the core principles that D&I work require, and the healthy skepticism that's required when dealing with platitudes...ones that come in the form of phrasing such as "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" or in the form of federal holidays like Juneteenth. Along the way, I'm forced to consider my own viewpoints and language and the extent to which I'm working on what Torin believes is the true ROI of D&I: Humanity.
