Sharing In Our Caring — Episode 4 | An Ongoing Journey in Committing to Do Better 

We just launched our next episode on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are so relevant in our world right now that we would be remiss not to discuss it. In this episode of “Sharing in Our Caring” (a platform for human services professionals, policy-makers, and thought leaders to shed light on the topics and trends impacting their industry), hosts Elliot Massuda and Natalie Wright-Umoh discuss the importance of DEI and how that work has become more prominent. They are joined by Cindy Joseph, the Founder and CEO of The Cee Suite, who shares her experience as a talent management consultant, with a specialized focus in DEI. Tune in to hear the insights Cindy shares with organizations that are making a commitment to this work. Visit here to listen. “Sharing In Our Caring” is available on most podcast platforms.

How do we balance keeping someone safe and protecting their autonomy while experiencing the consequences of their choices? The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) will talk about helping someone learn to make good choices while acknowledging they may fail or be wrong.

Please note that some early episodes will now be temporarily unavailable on streaming platforms. All episodes will still be available to listen to on MyODP.
