In this episode, Brandon Laws sits down with Réland Logan and Katy Byrtus of Cinder, a staffing agency headquartered in Hillsboro, OR. The group discusses the growing emphasis on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) initiatives in today’s business world. Instead of just checking the EDI box, learn some best practices for creating an authentic and equitable culture at your business.



  • By beginning with a goal of equality across all people, companies will inevitably become more diverse and more inclusive.
  • Allowing employees to air out their grievances allows Cinder to get a deeper understanding of what it is that they need. 
  • Leaders must create a common language and understanding because we all come to work with different lived experiences and perceptions.
  • One common challenge in cultivating effective EDI initiatives can be leaders who aren’t willing to accept that there are issues that need to be resolved.
