Four our episode on mindset shift, we have brought to the table a special guest: Dr. Poornima Luthra is the author of ‘Diversifying Diversity: Your guide to being an active ally of inclusion in the workplace’ and the founder and CEO of TalentED Consultancy ApS as well as a member of the teaching Faculty at the Copenhagen Business School.
She has spent the last fifteen years researching and teaching university courses in the field of talent management, with a focus on Diversity and Inclusion. More recently, Poornima has taken her years of academic experience into the corporate world with the vision of making workplaces more inclusive for all.
Poornima focuses on inspiring shifting mindsets and expanding the areas of diversity we look at through strategy consulting, corporate training, keynote sessions, talks, articles, blog posts, and podcasts.
In our interview, we discuss the topic of changing your mindset and going for what makes you happy. Passion and career are often two words that we all strive to connect, but the success stories are not shared as much. We think Poornima is an example of how following your passion and going back to who you help you successfully build a career that you are passionate about.
