2020 has been a year of civil unrest. We’ve witnessed protests and riots, all of which stem from a lack of empathy and understanding. The unfortunate side effect is the barrier of ignorance and not knowing how to approach diversity and inclusion at home, at work, and play.

Kerri Wise, the VP of communications at TrueCar and Cofounder of WOCAN (Women of Color Automotive Network), is a tremendous advocate for helping the retail car industry understand this sensitive topic.

In this episode, Kerri and Michael tackle some sensitive topics to break down the stigmas associated with diversity and inclusion. They demonstrate that you can have a productive, constructive, and fun conversation that lifts and illuminates, rather than divides and fuels anger and hate.

Pay close attention to Kerri’s wisdom about leadership, diversity in the workplace, and what you can do to be more inclusive at your dealership and in your community.
