Envision RISE Podcast Release: Ron Harvey on Meeting People Where They Are
Our latest episode features Ron Harvey, VP/COO, Global Core Strategies, and Lifecoach alongside Envision RISE’s Global Director of Equity & Inclusion, Staci Hegarty. Ron shares his experiences and rich history as a leader in coaching, a military career, and a business owner. As a coach, Ron strives to meet people where they are and measures his success on the success of those he coaches. In creating a more diverse and inclusive society, he encourages us to open our doors, hold our loved ones accountable, and examine our own history and beliefs. Staci and Ron take a deep dive into:

  • The expectations of Black people, Indigenous peoples, and people of color (BIPOC) to assimilate in professional and personal settings to white culture 
  • How white colleagues can show up for BIPOC 
  • The expectations of Black business owners & executives to be the spokespeople for all people of color and not as individuals
  • The cultural and professional pressures of how to show up as a Black executive
  • Existing systemic roadblocks in financing and certifying businesses owned by BIPOC and the disenfranchisement of businesses for BIPOC
  • How systems built for equity now do the opposite
  • How to expand your network and connections to people different from you
