Episode 143: Tackle Tough Issues and Make a Difference with CEO and Author Y-Vonne Hutchinson
Y-Vonne Hutchinson is the CEO & Founder of Ready Set and the author of How to Talk to Your Boss About Race: Speaking Up Without Getting Shut Down.

She has worked with foreign national governments, the US Department of State, and the UN. She is a member of Harvard Law’s Institute for Global Law and Policy network and an expert on labor relations and diversity in the workplace.
Y-Vonne and Patrick discuss challenging issues including conflict, racism, crisis, personal trauma, and more.
