Today’s episode is a further exploration of how firms will try to evolve their culture by hiring Community Managers. If you’ve not listened to last week’s episode featuring Sarah Drinkwater pull up, back up and tuck in to that one first. Sarah said the person I should talk to is Abadesi Osunsade from Brandwatch - and so that’s who we are talking to today. Abadesi’s title is VP Global Community & Belonging at the 500 strong organisation. We talk about seeking to get better at Diversity & Inclusion, giving voice to teams (and applicants) and how to build community in organisations who are no longer together. Abadesi mentions Square’s Rise program. This is the scheme that ensures there’s always one minority candidate at the last stage of each hiring process. You’ll find more details on it here. (note I couldn’t find it on the UK website so maybe stay on the US site when it asks if you want to move). Here’s Abadesi’s book and the other organisation she’s part of The Hustle Crew.
