From College to Career: Creating Opportunities for Next-Generation Talent

This episode of the DEI After 5 podcast features guest Byron Slosar, CEO and founder of hellohive, discussing the importance of using technology to connect with underrepresented talent and humanize the recruitment process. Byron shares insights on his background and mission to make student experiences more meaningful.

“hellohive is using technology to make sure that people are meeting people and to humanize a lot of [recruiting process] that I think has become a bit archaic and mechanic, and forgetting that human beings exist within the culture…[Our goal is to] really empower next generation talent with more resources and more of a voice and participation and selection in the recruiting process rather than only being looked at as candidates or applicants really as those that are on one side of a two way conversation and a two way relationship.”

Welcome everyone to DEI After Five, the show that focuses on topics across diversity, equity, and inclusion with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Here’s your Hostess, inclusive culture curator, and coach Sacha Thompson. Hey, everyone, and welcome to this week’s episode of DEI After 5. All right, so, we all know that there’s been so much going on in the corporate space around teams being let go. And more than not, it’s usually around the diversity teams, the recruiting teams, you know, etcetera. But organizations still need to find underrepresented talent.


{ 0:56 } Sacha Thompson

They need to be able to tap into spaces and places where they don’t necessarily recruit. And so if the people aren’t there, what are some opportunities? What are some other venues that organizations can use? And so today, I wanted to dive into just one aspect of that by talking to today’s guest, Byron Slosar, who is the CEO and founder of hellohive. And so we’re going to get into some of the things that are important for organizations to think about as they’re looking to recruit talent. So, Byron, welcome to the show.


{ 1:35 } Byron Slosar: 

Thank you for having me. Pardon the New York voices behind me, which are sirens and ambulances and everything else.


{ 1:44 } Sacha Thompson:

All good, all good. So Byron, for folks who may not know you or what you all do at hellohive, can you give us just a little bit of insight?


{ 1:53 } Byron Slosar:



{ 1:54 } Byron Slosar:

I kind of lead a little bit with who I am because I think that overall what we’re up to is using technology to make sure that people are meeting people and to humanize a lot of process that I think has become a bit archaic and mechanic and forgetting that human beings exist within the culture. But my name is Byron Slosar. I’m the CEO and Founder of hellohive. I am originally from Baton Rouge, LA. I’m one of six kids and ended up in New York following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and spent a good bit of my time prior to hellohive in the more traditional career landscape, working for many universities on behalf of students. Through that, I saw some opportunities for us to make more meaningful the experiences of students coming in without requiring them to know anything when they get to college, right. I think unfortunately college has become a place that instead of showing up knowing that you need to know nothing and having an opportunity to learn when you’re there, you’re pretending to know who you are so you can get a job the minute you step foot on campus. And I was one of those, right?


{ 2:58 } Byron Slosar:

And so how can we with the right technology in hand really empower next generation talent with more resources and more of a voice and participation and selection in the recruiting process rather than only being looked at as candidates or applicants really as those that are on one side of a two way conversation and a two way relationship. So we launched hellohive in 2020 with two main purposes. One, to use technology to make sure that no one needs any personal, financial, or otherwise inequitable resource to achieve career success. And #2 to really look at diversity from it, diversity of lived experience lens. To look at it as something that is ever evolving, all inclusive, self identified. So that whether the world is great or whether the world you know is blowing up on itself again, we always have one place to come to to really understand and welcome next generation talent from a myriad of ever evolving backgrounds.


{ 4:00 } Sacha Thompson:

There’s so much that you just said that I want to unpack like just just so much, you know. But I appreciate what you were saying around how students show up to four year institutions, right. So I started my career in higher education years ago and it was very much this, “I kind of have an idea what I want to do. So let me use this time to figure that out”, which has now morphed into this is just a stepping stone to get to this career, right that I want. And there’s there’s a lot that’s lost in that process I think of learning and growing and getting to know who you are. And so I appreciate you know what you’re saying around kind of removing some of those inequities so that we’re all starting with OK, some of the basics, some of the foundations of this.


{ 4:59 } Sacha Thompson:

So I’m thinking about, you know, what we’re seeing right now around diversity and inclusion, especially in higher education, and a lot of places and spaces are getting rid of the DEI at the university level. How is that impacting kind of the work that you all do or is it impacting you all at all?


{ 5:23 } Byron Slosar:

It’s interesting when we launched, diversity has always been something and I think that I’ll probably say it 14,000 times while we talked today, self identified, all inclusive and ever evolving.  My value to the workforce is not only that I’m part of the LGBT community.   For me, more importantly, it’s that I am a gay Southern Jew from Baton Rouge, LA, that went to the Catholic school my entire life that has five siblings and I’m #4 out of 6, which is lower middle, which is the worst positioning ever in a family.


{ 6:01 } Byron Slosar:

You know, who is a sociology major who had no idea that finance could have been a thing because of my relationship, you know, balancing skill sets. There’s a lot in that upbringing, right? That makes me extremely relevant to where I go to work.  And that is what this is about, right? It’s looking at our identities and saying great, now what value do I want to bring? What do I want to share rather than disclose If there’s a big, big we can talk about just the wording that we’re using around some of this stuff.  So when I do show up, right, I’m showing up as I’m not a big fan of like my full self or my best self, but like I’m showing up as who I know I am at that point in time. And I feel good about it. And I’m being welcomed into a family or a culture, not just an office. It really understands me a little bit more.


{ 6:57 } Byron Slosar:

So when we look at DEI in good times, right? Or in in tough times, I think having one place for both sides of the conversation to exist and particularly for me for next-generation talent to inform what we should be thinking about with the self-identified piece. We have learned very quickly at Hive, you know we have I think 32,000 students from over 1600 schools, and close to 40% of them first identify as first-generation college students, right. What a wonderful and resilient lived experience that if companies focus just on that, right, or on socioeconomic status or on student-athletes, every identity that is a priority or representation interest right now or in the future would walk into our doors organically. And I think that’s a big piece of how to approach this right now. You welcome everyone.


{ 7:55 } Byron Slosar:

You broaden the pool and if that everyone really feels like they can be themselves and share more about themselves, then we do get to the same outcome without only that linear approach that I think right now is very important, but I think for a lot of companies is a bit intimidating.


{ 8:12 } Sacha Thompson:

Yeah. I love the fact that you’re really focusing on you know self-identified because for so many people that’s a hard thing to do because they may not have even done some of that unpacking themselves of how they identify or what’s important to them. And you know, so I’m I’m thinking about what you were talking about, just that pool of students that are first-generation students, right? And in this time and age, that there’s still so many first generation college students and a lot of people, their bias is oh, everybody’s going to college, right?


{ 8:54 } Sacha Thompson:

You know, and so there’s this pool that is forgotten or not even thought about because it’s not that person’s experience or that organization’s experience. So I love that. On a personal side note, I was kind of giggling because, you know, you’re saying you were a sociology major that didn’t know about finance, and I was a sociology major that started as a finance major and I was like, this isn’t, no.


{ 9:15 } Byron Slosar:

Not really.


{ 9:18 } Sacha Thompson:

I was like, this is not it for me at all. My mom was in banking and she was like, Oh yeah, finance and yeah.


{ 9:24 } Byron Slosar:

Not at, I met it, but it’s it’s like looking at the first-generation college experience too. First off, there are wonderful companies that are empowering and really growing into this type of effort. I would be remiss not to mention Dee McDougal at Capco. Capco was one of the first companies that I met that had a first-generation focused ERG, right? And so I think that we, we are seeing it develop a little bit into the space, but with first-generation college students, I’ve learned a lot, right? So when we launched, first-generation college students were not on my radar.


{ 9:59 } Byron Slosar:

That wasn’t my first experience, but I knew that if we built for students first, right, everybody else builds for companies thinking students are going to show up. I built for students to make companies come right. I saw enough of the broken space. That is the reason 25% of students last year even used career centers for internships. I should not be required to do so much when I’m in college to worry about margins and hyphens on a resume. We’ve developed patented technology that builds formatting for resumes. So I get to tell my story and through that story, the experience of me as a person, whether it’s first gen or community college, right. But a first generation college student as they’re looking at finance or other traditionally kind of, you know, very visible careers, first gen students coming to college, right. And like me, I wasn’t first gen. but I didn’t have a lot of perspective around careers.   We need time to develop that once we’re there.


{ 10:56 } Byron Slosar:

And so we’re on a little bit more of a delayed career maturation cycle. And so what we do is like me too, I went in as pre-Med and then I met organic chemistry and I was like, I’m not pre-Med. That was the end of my sophomore year. So now I’m like, uh oh, investment banking just passed me up right? Because I need to know like when I my son back here is like 5 1/2 like investment banks are going to start recruiting him next year.  So how do we create a space that gives me that time once I get there to understand something, choose that I’m interested and then become prepared by the time I need to recruit? And that’s all-purpose.


{ 11:40 } Sacha Thompson:

Yeah. And you know, one of the things that and we were just using first time college students, I mean first-generation college students as an example. But you know, that whole idea of what does diversity look like needs to shift.


{ 11:59 } Sacha Thompson:

And I don’t think that it’s shifting from the definition. The definition that you use, the definition that most DEI practitioners use, I don’t think has changed. I think and I’ve been talking about this with several people, right. It’s like DEI needs a new comms plan, right? We need a new messaging plan. And because it’s been so focused on this group or that group, we miss out on the diversity of diversity like we miss out on all of these other groups that could be impacted. When I worked in tech, one of the biggest groups that had its own area of focus was military spouses, right? Nobody was thinking about military spouses. But when you think about, OK, who can gain some skill sets that may not have skill sets because they’re moving around so much, that was a group that no one had thought about.


{ 12:54 } Byron Slosar:

I love that you said that because what we’re seeing in complete you know to be alongside that is on our resumes we give students the opportunity to self-identify and have that just be a line item on their resume because when any resume that goes to every employer, that information has only been provided by the student, right. It’s only going in for an opportunity to qualify for we are in the business of protecting their privacy, not selling it, and because of that we see these moments of “wow, I haven’t thought about,” that recently as of last summer. So last summer we took I think over 4000 students through some virtual programming across tech consulting and finance and through that we did some resume sessions, right. And I do think that resumes are very relevant and one page can tell your whole story rather than trying to just keyword it into an applicant tracking system. But we started seeing a decent number of students self-identifying as dependents of military families, right.


{ 13:58 } Byron Slosar:

We talked about vets a lot. We don’t talk about their kids and that is the piece of the workforce that’s coming in droves. Like think about that experience of, you know, alongside one of my parents, if not both moving from town to town, acclimating to new environments like those. That’s the good stuff, right?


{ 14:16 }Sacha Thompson:

That’s a skill set a lot of people don’t have right? Like being able to adapt, being able to go into new situations on every two to three years, like. However, it is like those are skill sets that need to be highlighted absolutely


{ 14:33 } Byron Slosar:

And through that it was so cool because we got to see, you know, one student talked about this in one of our sessions a week later and this is a power of technology, Sacha. Then we started seeing students identifying as a dependent of disabled parents.  Like this is the stuff, right?


{ 14:50 } Byron Slosar:

Like this is, this is the stuff of what makes me feel so good about my different lived experience that empowers me, that makes me proud of myself rather than disclosing something on a form and worrying about that. And I think that’s where we got to find the balance and really create new, new environments, yeah.


{ 15:11 } Sacha Thompson:

So I want to flip this on its head a bit because, you know, I love that this is opening up new opportunities, creating new spaces, or opening up old spaces to new people.  But then you have the groups that have been at the forefront historically, disenfranchised, that are feeling, well, you know, everyone else is getting a shot but me, right? I’m thinking of like what is happening at the state level against the LGBTQ plus population? I mean, there’s just some rollbacks that are very concerning to me.


{ 15:54 } Sacha Thompson:

You know, right now what I’m seeing with even some states saying black history doesn’t even exist, right? And so I can hear this other side of folks that is like, but we’re still being lost in this, right? And so how do you make sure that those individuals are not feeling that they’re going to be marginalized yet again in a system that allows for everyone’s diversity to shine?


{ 16:25 } Byron Slosar:

As a 45-year-old, almost 46, all I do is listen and take advice from my kids, my early career job seekers, my college students, right?  Amplifying their voices, understanding them more, having them feel part of a process, even if it’s a frustrating process. 


{ 16:48 } Byron Slosar:

My responsibility right now is on kind of, you know, one sliver of the overall environment and that is to make sure that students in college and coming into toward the workforce for the first time are as comfortable as possible and feel like they understand as much as they can. That’s all we can do. And so I think that I also am new to the DEI space, right. So from a traditional lens, I stepped into this three years ago because I never even saw my background to something relevant to talk about at work. And so I think that where I’m focused and where we’re focused as a company and just me as a human being is making sure that transparent conversations exist, that we treat this generation of talent not as kids, right, but as really those who can help mentor us and inform what we build. And if we just maintain, I think the level of priority around ensuring that is still happening, that the spaces that they walk in, whether they’re great, decent, moderate or bad, they’re still gonna feel better about being in those spaces.


{ 17:58 } Byron Slosar:

And they can choose to impact that however they want. But it’s frustrating. It’s also brand new. We never thought we would be in a world where so much stuff is happening that has never happened before and that’s become the consistent thing. So it’s just getting by.


{ 18:20 } Sacha Thompson:

Buckle in.  It’s not going anywhere, you know? So I am. My brain goes in a million different directions all the time. And so you know my passion and one of my.


{ 18:35 } Sacha Thompson:

To say ventricles of my heart, but that’s a little too technical. And you’re the medical, I think that’s why I didn’t do any of that is with students, right? I absolutely, you know, anytime a student reaches out to me like what is it that you need? I’m, I’m always there.  But for our listeners, for the folks that watch us, many of them are in corporate spaces. And so I can see their wheels turning on.


{ 18:59 } Sacha Thompson:

You know, how can we tap into this? What is it that organizations before we even, you know, connect them to you and the work that you do? What is it that they need to be prepared to have in place before they even come to you? Like, what are some of the things that, yeah, that they need?


 { 19:21 } Byron Slosar:

Not much, right. I mean I think an open mind they need to have from a a corporate partnership client standpoint you need to be invested in bringing early career talent to your organization. Quick sidebar, but you know we are now as a company you know almost three years in. I learned very quickly early on that as a hyper-growth stage early, you know start-up, this was not the space for entry-level talent, right. So I think 1 is really saying, am I ready for that?


{ 19:57 } Byron Slosar:

Because think about this like I came from 20 years of just working with college students. So the first thing I wanted to do when I lost a company was like empower them to bring them in. That didn’t work right because I could not afford at our early stage for anyone to not know exactly what they’re doing the minute they got here. So I do think you got to look around and regardless of like you know DEI initiatives or other environmental factors.  Is this place conditioned or ready to bring in that level of talent, number one? So I guess there is a piece of that that is relevant, but then it’s just, you know, if the answer is yes, then you gotta have an open mind and you gotta be willing to be wrong a lot or to have a lot of what you thought really reconsidered.    We did a panel. So when we get invited into speaking opportunities, I’d like to bring a lot of our students with us where I have to do a lot of reverse mentoring.


{ 20:56 } Byron Slosar:

And you know we learned so many things that just are like a-ha or duh moments of what can companies be doing better. And you know, with financial services consulting, big companies, we’ve seen that to get someone to move to a city for an internship or a full-time job that is not from that city, it’s not only the salary of the compensation being great, but if you’re not sending a housing stipend four months in advance, nobody can move. So to move to New York as a first time New Yorker, you got to put a deposit down two months in advance where a lot of companies are still just retroing at once. He got there. So you got to be open to, like, really rethinking some of the very basic things that you’re doing. And then you just got to be good people. You know, good people make bad decisions, good people make mistakes. But the general rule is we invite you into our community. If you want to do well, you don’t have to have done well to be here.


{ 21:58 } Sacha Thompson:

Yeah, I appreciate that.  And folks that have listened to me have heard me say, you know, this is more than just checking a box. Oh, we have this talent. Let’s check this box. It is how are you preparing the body for this new organ that’s coming in, right. Like if you’re doing open heart surgery, you have to prepare the body for this new heart. And so it it takes a process to do that. And so I appreciate you using those examples because I think so many organizations not from a bad place, but again from a place of not necessarily knowing and understanding or operating from where they were when they were at that point in their lives. Things have shifted, things have changed, and understanding this is a different generation than you know who they were when they started their careers. And so we’re now in this post-pandemic space organization, not organizations like you were saying rent, right, two months, three months, four months of rent is now part of this.


{ 22:58 } Sacha Thompson:

It’s not just that financial salary compensation. It is, you know, transportation. How are people? Is it close to where we need to be, do they have to learn the metro system? I’m in the DC area. It’s what probably one of the easiest metros to learn, but you have to learn it. You have to understand how to get around and navigate. And it’s not just the train, right? Trains, planes, all the things. So I’m really am glad that you said it the way that you did because people need to understand, organizations need to understand that there’s a preparation process that needs to take place. And it’s not just saying, yes, we want this talent, it’s are you prepared to have the talent and are you, what are you willing to do in order to ensure the success of that talent? Some of the metrics that irritate and frustrate me, is they love looking at like the recruiting metrics, right? We’re getting them in, we’re getting them in, but I’m like, OK, but who’s going out the back door? How long are they staying? And so that’s the piece that I think is important as well for organizations to think about “What are you doing to ensure who’s coming into the door is successful,” right. You’re not just checking the box to say, see, look, we brought in all this diverse talent and they’re running out the back door just as fast. And so I think that that’s another piece that organizations need to consider. Now that being said, is that something that your organization kind of holds the hand through that process as well, or like what does that look like?


{ 24:37 } Byron Slosar:

I have so much to say to that I’ll go there for a second. I think that when you look at just the the eight years, 8 to 10 years from from high school into college, you know into your job.


{ 24:54 }

I think there are some consistencies in what’s kind of can use some enhancement in the entry-level getting into work as also getting into college, right. So I think you look at the college space and a lot of the college admissions process is built around getting them in, not getting them out right. But it’s the college’s job to prepare, to resource, to give them voice and knowledge, to forge their own directions and ‘cause that’s what high schools do, right? And so I think you’re seeing that there’s this interesting counterbalance of it only being on the company to bring them in, cultivate them, grow them, and develop them. And so I think that it’s really a lot of all, all our, all of our responsibilities, not just the companies, right? So what we do is, is the way that students engage with us. We’re free for all students, we’re free for all schools, we’re free for all nonprofits who work on behalf of any students or schools. But we ask students and require them to put in the work, right. So you have to go through a career center in the cloud. They have to build their residue with that technology. They actually have to demonstrate some intentionality and some commitment to the process. And because of that, they don’t only feel empowered, but they now have refocused and rather than spaghetti against a wall, have said this is where I want to go. And let me be more intentional in that first step. And because of that, the company has to do less and they’re staying longer, right. We got 100% retention rates at some of our biggest clients over the past three years because the student had an option and it felt like they selected it. And so that’s the one face, the other side of the retention conversation.


{ 26:51 } Byron Slosar:

I do think there’s a difference in how we need to look at retention from whether someone was released from a job because they couldn’t do it or whether they chose to leave, right?


{ 27:02 } Sacha Thompson:

Right. And if they chose?


{ 27:03 } Byron Slosar:

To leave, by the way, I still don’t think that we should count it against retention unless they chose to leave the channel, right. So then if I’m in consulting and I left, you know, said consulting firm because I wanted to be closer to my parents in San Francisco, but I joined another consulting firm, I think we need to focus on channel retention, not company retention. I like that. So there’s a lot there. But I wanted to kind of like it. It really is. It starts with getting them into college first, making them a little bit more equitable, right? And then college is focusing on as much on helping get them out and getting in and then us going along the way. But it’s a lot of folks involved in this whole journey, and it shouldn’t just be up to the in recipient to do everything.


{ 27:45 } Sacha Thompson:

Right. And I like that. I appreciate that because you you said one of my favorite words, right, “intentionality” and the student being intentional in what I want to do.


{ 27:54 } Sacha Thompson:

And they may not even have a full idea because I’m thinking just of my experience, right? Like I said, I started working in higher education and then I’m like all those student loans that I had, this higher education salary is not going to pay those. So right. My next path was finding something that was higher education adjacent and then from there, because I ended up in marketing, somehow I ended up doing marketing in tech, right? So it was just very interesting path. But it’s always funny to me how people say, you know, it looks like you were so intentional with your career choices and I’m like really because that’s not how it felt. But hindsight being 2020, I was very intentional about what skills do I want to attain during this process and I was not picky on where, but I knew the what I wanted.


{ 28:49 } Sacha Thompson:

And so I I appreciate, you know that intentionality and making sure that even if people off board from an organization, if they’re staying within that industry or they’re picking up a skill to take somewhere else, right. It’s still the part of a channel.


{ 29:07 } Byron Slosar:

Of course 1000%, right? Intentionality can be a commitment to the process, but I mean, just think about this. We, the average college student changes their major three times, but then we expect for them just to say yes, this is what I want and stay there forever. No, like I always tell, like the majority of our kids, our college students, I say the first step out of college doesn’t have to be everything and rarely is it.  It needs to be something. It shouldn’t just be anything, right? But that’s something just middle first step, right? Like I had four different five different careers before this. Like, take a little bit of the pressure off and just say, like, OK, we’re still figuring ourselves out. And unless I’m going to be an investment banker because my dad was when I was three years old, then I’m probably going to have to pivot a little bit when I get into college or even out of college into my job, yeah.


 { 29:58 } Sacha Thompson:

I love it And my wheels are turning, My wheels are turning. We’re going to do another bit of a pivot. So Byron, this is interesting work and you know, we’ve started our companies around the same time, that 2020 time frame. So I truly feel like understand what it means to be a business owner in this time and day and building a business during, you know, a pandemic. What are the things that you do to take care of yourself? Like how do you feel your cup?


{ 30:32 } Byron Slosar:

It’s been tough. In addition to, you know, launching a company, I also had you know my first and only son in 2018. And so I like to say you know, I’ve been raising a company and and a kid at the same time, but I have learned a lot about myself. I don’t turn off at all. I’m extremely ADHD and OCD.


{ 30:54 } Byron Slosar:

It does not make for the natural ease of understanding, work, life, balance, organic for me. What I have done is I am very self aware and I take on commitments, formal commitments because I need to have that formality to separate me from work. I mean I love this stuff. This is my entire life. Byron my son. That was not my idea by the way, my husband, long story short, but I took my husband’s last name. We decided Byron would be Byron. My initials are now BS which is great. So that’s fun. But he’s now in kindergarten right? So I’m class Dad. I am Co-chair of the all school multicultural committee. I didn’t just want to be a volunteer because I knew I wouldn’t give it the space and so formal committee membership. I have to be there for these meetings, right? And so I think that’s how I’ve found a way to withdraw a little bit from work. But you know, any startup CEO will tell you it’s very hard.


{ 32:00 } Byron Slosar:

I meditate, I walk to work, but as much as I can, I just hang out with my husband and my kid because I don’t even have time to do that these days. And so not much, but it’s intentional. I mean, I’m trying to figure it out, but I haven’t haven’t figured it out just yet, to be honest.


{ 32:19 } Sacha Thompson:

It’s hard, right? And that’s why I asked the question because I think so many people, some people are very intentional about it and others are just like, you know, I do the things that I can. And so I was talking to someone else not too long ago when they were talking about meditation. I was like, that’s something I do every night. Like that’s how I shut my brain down because if I don’t, I’m thinking about the next e-mail that I need to send out or the next, you know, and so being very intentional and honoring that space. And so I appreciate that. And I was, yeah, the walk to work fortunately mine is like 20 steps upstairs.


{ 32:56 } Sacha Thompson:

But  it’s still something that once I’m here, I don’t go back, you know, and it’s hard.


{ 33:03 } Byron Slosar:

I mean, I think we put a lot of pressure on everyone, including you know our students to to take the space. It’s it’s it’s really hard to figure out. 


{ 33:15 } Sacha Thompson:

You have to find what works for you.

So, Byron, if folks wanted to find out more about the work that you do, hello, Hive. Contact you. What? What? How can they do that? 


{ 33:27 } Byron Slosar:

hellohive.com. My e-mail address is byron@hellohive.com. I’ve got my LinkedIn up very excited that I just hit 25,000 followers. I was not a very popular kid in college, so the joke is now that I’m fine with the campus that I wanted to do when I was in college and so that’s how to get hold of me.


{ 33:48 } Byron Slosar:

I’m also extremely available and I think a lot of not having that many friends when I was kind of coming up and coming out has encouraged me to take advantage of this and really form communities of students and colleagues and treat those as real relationships. So feel free to reach out. I’m happy to get to know you.


{ 34:06 } Sacha Thompson: 

So Byron, thank you so much for spending time with us today. I love this conversation. Like I said, students are near and dear to my heart. So this is something that I think other organizations really need to think about it and consider as they are looking at their recruiting and just being intentional about the space. So thank you. 


{ 34:25 } Byron Slosar:

Thank you for having me, this was fun.


{ 34:27 }Sacha Thompson:

And thank you all for joining us for this week’s episode of DEI. After five, hopefully you were able to walk away with a few Nuggets or some ideas that you can take into your organization. You can find us here every Tuesday at 5:15 PM on YouTube or wherever you listen to your favorite podcast. Be sure to like, share, subscribe, do all the things and until next time have a good one.
