Psychological Safety: The Foundation of Workplace Inclusion

A conversation with Janine Yancey, Founder & CEO of Emtrain

powered by Sounder

About the episode

Janine Yancey is Founder and CEO at Emtrain, which provides companies with culture analytics and trainings on bias, discrimination and harassment. Emtrain’s unique model gives companies a way for employees to call out moments in which they feel peers’ behaviors have been disrespectful on a spectrum from red to green, red being toxic and green being respectful and conscious. 

 

The approach is designed to enable psychologically safe conversations, reduce conflict and effect change.    

 

“It’s hard work,” she says, “but it’s not rocket science to build a workplace that is healthy, where people feel like they’re valued, where they’re respected, where they belong.”  

 

Yancey is also an employment law attorney, whose expert testimony has helped shape workplace equity legislation in the state of California.
