She highlights work done by ESPN president John Skipper that personifies being “color brave” to ensure diversity hiring and workplace practices at ESPN.

As a new leader, you have been tasked with creating a new diversity program. The program should embrace a culture of inclusiveness, provide a platform for “color brave” and allow individuals an opportunity to network with all levels within the organization.

3. Provide an overview of a program that you would develop at your organization.

4. What obstacles do you think you would face and who would you need to involve to obtain the appropriate support?
