As an author and speaker on inclusive workplaces, Karen Catlin saw the need to lend a voice to those underrepresented in the healthcare industry, especially after the last few years in which these workers have given so much to their communities. In her latest book; Belonging in Healthcare: The Better Allies® Approach to Creating More Inclusive Workplaces Karen gives us a practical approach to being a better ally for co-workers to create a more inclusive so everyone can thrive.
This is the book that allies in healthcare have been searching for: an industry-specific guide to the mindsets, strategies, and changes needed to make their workplaces more equitable from the inside out. Listen to our interview below!
After spending 25 years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Macromedia and Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears.
Today, Karen is a highly acclaimed author and speaker on inclusive workplaces. She is the author of four books: Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces, Belonging in Healthcare, The Better Allies Approach to Hiring, and Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking.
