Dr. Shannon Deer, interim associate dean for undergraduate programs at Texas A&M’s Mays Business School, and Cheryl Miller, founder of Quantum Consulting and Training, are co-authors of “Business Doing Good: Engaging Women and Elevating Communities,” which outlines six principles business leaders can implement to effectively hire women who have experienced serious hardships — incarceration, poverty, homelessness, addiction, violence or engagement in the sex trade — to positively impact lives, businesses and communities. Deer’s work focuses on corporate social responsibility and the intersection of business and social challenges. In this VISION by Protiviti podcast, Protiviti’s Amber Acosta speaks with Dr. Shannon Deer and Cheryl Miller.
