Hosted by Jackie Ferguson, The Diversity Movement Podcast Launches Season 9 on Top-Rated Network
HOUSTON & RALEIGH, September 7, 2023 – Living Corporate, founded by entrepreneur Zach Nunn, is a digital media network that connects Black and brown talent to the organizations that want to engage them. Through its flagship podcast “Real Talk Tuesdays” and several additional creative and innovative multimedia programs, Living Corporate promotes and amplifies workplace equity, inclusion, and fairness.
Given its mission to authentically transform the modern workplace through diversity-led programming, The Diversity Movement is closely aligned with Living Corporate’s aims and mission. As a result, “Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox,” the acclaimed podcast hosted by TDM Co-founder Jackie Ferguson, is becoming part of the Living Corporate network.
Season Nine launches on Sept. 19, 2023, featuring a range of senior executives, authors, activists, and thought leaders who share diverse perspectives across industries and explore how their efforts have worked to create a better world.
“To say that I am honored and humbled to bring ‘Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox’ into Living Corporate’s network of podcasts focused on workplaces fairness, leadership, and career management is an understatement,” said Zach Nunn, Founder and CEO, Living Corporate. “Jackie Ferguson is a star and we can’t wait to amplify the incredible work she is leading at The Diversity Movement.”
“Our partnership with Zach and Living Corporate is very intentional and based on a commitment to building more just and equitable workplaces and communities,” said Jackie Ferguson, Vice President, Content and Programming and Co-founder, The Diversity Movement. “What has set ‘Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox’ apart is our determination to celebrate leadership as it relates to compassion, inclusion, and empathy. With Living Corporate, we’ll not only continue this effort, but become a louder voice for stories of resilience, journeys to success, and lessons learned.”
“Working toward Zach’s vision and via his leadership, Living Corporate has quickly become a force for underrepresented voices in the workplace,” said Donald Thompson, CEO and Co-founder of The Diversity Movement. “After more than 100 episodes, we have seen the power in amplifying voices committed to diversity-led culture change, and this alliance enables us to reach a wider audience with a partner who shares our values and mission.”
Ferguson, recently named to the 2023 Inc. Female Founders 200 list, the women leaders across America who are “shaping the world into a better place,” is a bestselling author and award-winning entrepreneur. She writes about inclusive business practices and is an in-demand speaker on diversity and belonging topics. Her book, The Inclusive Language Handbook: A Guide to Better Communication and Transformational Leadership, has sold in 15 countries around the world and sparked a revolution in the way people communicate. Recently, Ferguson released a follow-up volume, The Inclusive Language Handbook, Easterseals UCP Nonprofit Edition, which focuses on the inclusive language needs of nonprofits.
