Invisible Stories: Write to be Seen

Dec 9, 2020

Today on Invisible Stories, I speak with Dr. Shelton J. Goode, diversity and inclusion specialist and president and CEO of Icarus Consulting, a veteran-owned consulting firm that specializes in helping organizations create inclusive cultures that leverage diversity and inclusion for a competitive advantage. Dr. Goode has also written four books, the newest of which is Winter in America: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Diversity in Companies, Communities and the Country. 

Shelton and I discuss how he goes beyond just inclusion in his books, and how he instills his own experiences within his works. Shelton offers wisdom on: 

  • How he took an already saturated market for DEI books, and created something new with his books. 
  • Why vulnerability is important, and why you have to do the work and insert yourself into your book to connect with your audience. 
  • How his experience writing and defending his dissertation prepared him for defending his writing with conviction and purpose.
