Creating Opportunities to Change our Behavior
In this episode, Janine Jansen, Global Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Lead at Organon, shares what it means to be authentic in our equity journeys. Janine explains how we all have the opportunity to change our behavior, but real change happens in our hearts and minds. This is what leads to true allyship and advocacy for those impacted by inequity. She highlights how the lack of representation in spaces she has occupied motivated her to establish more inclusive environments. Janine expressed that it takes a bigger collective, that goes beyond lip service, so that diverse perspectives can thrive. She challenges her peers and colleagues to take risks to get buy-in from leadership because every community looks different and what works for one does not work for all. She points out the need for a culture shift and how we can gauge the needed metrics that encourage involvement, growth, and commitment. Janine also provides ways we can keep track of early wins and how we can use them as markers for progress and momentum to push us forward. Join Janine as she motivates her audience to push beyond a moment and strive for continuous progression and change.
