Is Purpose a Privileged Conversation?

George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer has raised the national consciousness on race and privilege in America. And it caused us at the Purpose Promise to do some soul-searching of our own. We are asking the question, “Is Purpose a Privileged Conversation?” In this episode, Purpose Promise founder John McCarthy is joined by D. Michelle Thompson, host of the You Belong podcast and workplace leadership consultant. D. Michelle shares her experience as an African American woman in corporate America and her conviction that purposeful employment and privilege are connected – but maybe not in the ways you might think.
