Demystifying Diversity

By Daralyse Lyons

What if you had the opportunity to hear compelling firsthand accounts about the often life-or-death stakes of unchecked biases and bigotry? Would you listen? Biracial journalist Daralyse Lyons has interviewed more than 100 people – academics, politicians, thought-leaders, advocates, activists, and even an incarcerated inmate – for an in-depth exploration of a wide range of topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Every other week, for ten weeks, she'll invite you to join her to learn more about a topic related to diversity. This podcast encourages listener participation, so, on alternating weeks, Daralyse and her co-collaborator AnnaMarie Jones will host a Q&A episode in which they answer listeners' questions, share about the interview and podcast compilation process, and delve more deeply into each topic. They are excited to partner with you to demystify diversity.
