Winn Claybaugh Interviews Janet Williams on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at Work
Janet Williams founded Progressive Discoveries, a company with a culturally intelligent approach to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Janet models the important conversations we must continue to have.
Janet delivered her first diversity training session in 1998, which led to the founding of Progressive Discoveries (1.0). In 2012, she joined the beauty industry and grew deep roots in the space, serving for several years as director of a prominent cosmetology and esthiology school in Washington, DC, and as Sr. Director of Operations Education for a franchise hair salon and beauty products company with over 1,000 U.S. locations.
Janet revitalized her "no shame, no blame" approach to DEIB work with the reopening of Progressive Discoveries (2.0) in 2019. The formula is simple: true diversity honors the value and contribution of every person, no matter what distinguishing characteristics they possess. In addressing these fundamental and sometimes sensitive concepts, leading from genuine acceptance and heart is always her starting point.
In this interview by Winn Claybaugh, Janet's discussion regarding diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is a passionate and important conversation we must continue to have. We all need to reinvigorate our vision and mission from time to time, and her core personal and business value, CARE (courage, abundance, resilience, education) provides that safe place where individuals and companies can come together for such growth. Her goal is to inspire people with CARE, wrapped in "integrity and grace."
