Inclusive leaders can prevent toxic work environments.
When you run an amazing company that is making the world a better place, one of the last things you want to hear is that an employee feels harassed or discriminated against. But statistics show that harassment and discrimination occur at very high rates, and good companies are not immune. Many business owners with scaling companies worry they might lose good employees or even face lawsuits because of discrimination, but they’re not ready to hire a full Human Resources Department.
In The Inclusive Leader’s Guide to Healthy Workplace Culture, Meredith Holley provides everything a business owner needs to stop and prevent toxic work environments, including:
If workplace cultural problems feel like a test you didn't know you signed up for, The Inclusive Leader’s Guide to Healthy Workplace Culture is a cheat sheet for acing that test and creating cultural health in your company.
It’s available at www.HealthyWorkplacrCulture.com and at Amazon here:

Jessica Howard is a campus president at Portland Community College. She holds a Ph.D. from New York University and, from Rice University, a Master and two Bachelor degrees. Her doctoral work was interdisciplinary and based in the humanities.
Prior to joining PCC in 2012, Dr. Howard enjoyed a long tenure at San Antonio College in San Antonio, Texas. There she worked as an adjunct instructor, a full-time assistant and associate professor, an online course developer and a department chair, Interim Executive Vice President (over student and academic affairs), and ultimately as the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Howard’s administrative experience also includes being Director of Fine Arts for a K-12 college preparatory school.
While at PCC, Dr. Howard has presided over the college’s workforce and community development operations. She is now leading the development of the college’s newest comprehensive campus, located in Southeast Portland. The Southeast Campus is PCC’s most diverse, housing lower-division transfer and career/technical programs, as well as the college’s alternative high school programs and its signature “aspirations to college” program, Future Connect.
Dr. Howard grew up primarily in San Antonio, but was born in Bombay, India and lived as a child in Bangkok, Thailand. She also spent a year abroad at King’s College in London during her college years. She considers her international experiences to be formative, as well as her lifelong efforts in the arts.

Our Garden is the crown jewel of public park spaces in Outer Southeast Portland. Wander more than a mile of trails and paths, discovering the Garden's special places. Find the Stone Cabin and the blue dinosaur. Like a library of plants, the various species in our collection display their qualities during different seasons.
The lush green landscape is also home to a variety of fauna. Deer, rabbits, squirrels are not uncommon. Occasional beaver and ermine may be seen. Hummingbirds and hawks, dragonflies and butterflies make their home here. Johnson Creek is home to fish and other aquatic creatures.
Dedicated volunteers make it possible for the Garden to be open to the public six days a week. They provide information at the Manor House and opportunities to browse our gift shop. More than a park, Leach offers a unique experience of the botanical, artistic, historic and natural landscapes.
