On our Valentine's week episode, Julie and Torin have no love for this week's outrageous Diversity and Inclusion fails, but still manage to end on a high note. In the month that brought us more and more blackface, we find a principal who thinks playing Steve Harvey was no big deal. General Motor's offers $25k to find out who is hanging nooses in their Toledo, Ohio plant while fighting the claim of responsibility in court. The World Economic Forum's annual gathering in Davos included its first ever panel on disability and employment. We review the panel - a lot of great talk with brilliant minds, will it translate to more hiring? Also, catch up with Torin and Julie out on the road as conference season 2019 kicks off!
