Desiree Adaway, founder and principal of the Adaway Group, is one of the nation’s preeminent diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant-facilitators with over 25 years of experience creating, leading, and managing international multicultural teams in 40 countries through major organizational change. She also leads the annual Whiteness at Work program, which I took in 2020. When she sent an email a few months ago about the intersection of creativity, and was leading a journaling workshop, I immediately wanted to know more about how she sees that intersection, so I invited her to the podcast.

As you’ll hear, we delve deep into the ways equity work and creativity are similar, which may surprise you—from perfectionism to self-judgment to how to use journaling as a tool for your own freedom as well as the collective good, you’ll find a lot to think on and explore.
