In this episode, Sasha is joined by Asif Sadiq MBE, Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer for Warner Brothers Discovery.

With a career spanning the City of London Police, EY, Adidas, and the Telegraph, Asif has emerged as one of the world's most prominent and influential DEI leaders. Asif has received a broad range of awards and recognition for his work to drive meaningful change in DEI, including being honoured with an MBE in 2017.

As anti-woke sentiment and polarisation increase at alarming rates, Asif discusses the need to create space for meaningful dialogue and conversation around DEI, and the value for leaders in replacing fear and anxiety around with humility and vulnerability.

We explore the factors that drive long term systematic change, and the value of going back to basics, from putting the DEI foundations in place to addressing the everyday and informal interactions that adversely impact diverse talent.

Packed with a wealth of practical insights and tips, this episode is a must listen, not only for DEI experts and HR practitioners but for leaders who are committed to making progress on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
