Episode 2: Offering Up Grace with India Sylvester

July 29, 2021

“Realize that there’s no expectation that you must get it all right. That’s where that grace comes in. But really being genuine and recognizing that I don’t know everything, whomever’s having that conversation may not know everything, but they’re open and willing to learn...grace is huge. I cannot stress that enough.” - India Sylvester

 

In our latest episode, we are joined by India Sylvester, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Lumen Technologies. India tells us about how her love of reading and a surprising college elective course drew her to a career in Human Resources. India also shares more about Lumen Technologies’ efforts in Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging and offers her advice for navigating conversations on inclusion.
