In episode 1, the panel discusses what opportunity means to them and their definition of the word.
Plus, they unpack what they are doing now to help secure further opportunities for others while breaking down potential barriers.
“Opportunities are numerous wherever you find them. It’s about how you take advantage of them, it’s about you not being impatient to see when that opportunity is going to pay off,” said Lena Waithe.
“There are so many things that can stop you from getting into the types of jobs that you want and so what we [Indeed] are looking at is really understanding the job seeker no matter the industry,” said LaFawn Davis.
