Supporting Diversity and Belonging with Kumari Williams at Workday

March 21st, 2023

On this episode, host Ryan Dull is joined by Kumari Williams, Global Head of Programs and Operation, Belonging and Diversity/Atlanta Site Leadership at Workday.

Kumari has a wealth of knowledge and experience in not only HR and talent acquisitions but also in creating diverse and inclusive workspaces. She offers wisdom to TA leaders pursuing more equitable representation in their organizations:

– Data is an important tool in understanding how to best implement DEI initiatives.

– DEI shouldn’t just be an organizational program, it should be baked into the company strategy and vision.

– Equity means more than just equal representation in the workplace, but also equal responsibility, compensation and access to opportunities within an organization.

– In a global organization, DEI initiatives should be tailored to fit within different cultural contexts.

– Creating a sense of belonging requires a leadership alignment around the shared value of inclusion.

When talent leaders and C-suite leadership share DEI values, belonging is a natural outflow of organizational culture.

Sagemark HR can help you:

✔ Improve your talent practices and make better, more informed people decisions.

After 20+ years of experience leading Recruiting and Talent Acquisition across a wide variety of industries, I’ve seen enough hires (over 100,000 to date) to know that hiring decisions truly can make or break an organization.

✔ Identify opportunities to not only improve your talent practices but also deliver tangible business results.

We understand every organization is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all magic solution. So we listen first and identify the gaps and sticking points in your current process before ever recommending a solution.

✔ Bridge the gap from “traditional” to modern recruiting, without the painful learning curve.

We believe recruiting, talent, and HR technology is a deep well of untapped business potential, and our mission is to help you identify and implement those hiring tools in a way that works for you.
