“Business is a way to free people, and capitalism is what allows us to create business. I’m much more interested in having conversations about the evolution of capitalism than being anti-capitalist.” – Trudi Lebrón
Today I’m happy to share an interview with one of my friends, Trudi Lebrón. I’ve been following her work for many years and have learned so much from her. She’s an expert in diversity, equity, and inclusion in business, and just published her new book, The Antiracist Business Book: An Equity Centered Approach to Work, Wealth, and Leadership. We chat about exploring identity, defining what success should mean in your own life, and how to be ethical without rejecting capitalism.
