In episode 137 of The Minority Report Podcast, Kerel and Erik discuss DEI with the founder at The Courage Collective, Daniel Oppong. Coming from immigrant parents from Ghana, West Africa, Daniel has always been an adventurer, achievement oriented, and overall determined person, which has helped him tremendously in his career. He found himself working at a company out of college for over 5 years, felt unfulfilled, and totally rethought his priorities and what he really valued. That was when he jumped in the tech space working for only $10/hour, even with having a lot of experience and a master’s degree, but it didn’t matter because it was a great fit as they aligned with his values.
In the discussion, Daniel talks about The Courage Collective and how they are helping transform the employee experience, all the way from recruiting to post work, the holistic approach they bring to companies and making sure they are only partnering with companies who are truly invested in DEI and not just wanting to check off boxes.
