Sharing Personal Stories & Implicit Bias Discussion
Recorded June 25, 2020, the Jack Cooper Podcast brings back two members of the Company's Diversity & Inclusion Commission for an important discussion examining the topic of implicit bias. D&I Commission member Lawrence Roberts, who is the Terminal Manager at Jack Cooper's Lansing facility, opens up with some personal stories of his experiences growing up in Detroit and the culture shock of moving to rural Iowa for college. Among the numerous offers he had to play NCAA football, Lawrence chose the scholarship offered by Iowa State for his path to a college degree. D&I Commission member Kasandra Ordaz, who is part of the Human Resources Team at Jack Cooper, joins the discussion as well. Kasandra helps us look deeper into implicit bias and how it can be addressed with a greater awareness as we go through our daily lives.
