Hey, Jorge, how are you this morning?
Oh, Chuck, I’m doing great. How are you doing today?
Good. I appreciate you getting up early. You’re on West Coast time. Correct? Correct. Joining me, I hope you’ve had at least some caffeine already.
Yes, sure. Have. You know, I’m an early riser. And so I love having conversations early in the morning. To me, they’re the best ones. Yeah.
Well, good today. I’m really thrilled to have you here, Jorge. And we’re going to focus in on DEI diversity, equity and inclusion as a very important topic. And I think your experts speak well about this to my listeners. But before we get started, can you just tell listeners a little bit about yourself, your role and the company you work for?
Sure. So thank you for that. And thank you for having me on your podcast here. So my name is Jorge Quezada. Originally, I’m from San Salvador, El Salvador. And I like saying that because it grounds me where I’m from, and it gets a chance to really practice my Spanish even though I only do it for a few seconds there.
