LaCroix Wins, Erickson Living Restructure, Snap Lays off Men, Russell Reynolds talks CDOs and Royal Caribbean with a Twist

This week Torin and Julie award the very first Crazy and the King Best of the Worst (or D/I Jackass?) Award to LaCroix Water and their parent company National Beverage Corporation. Then they get real deep into Snap and how layoffs affect diversity when diversity is already non-existent in a workforce.

What are your thoughts on the importance of Chief Diversity Officers? Julie and Torin talk through some of the learnings from Russell Reynolds new report.

Finally, Royal Caribbean had a big customer with a disability fail, but Julie wants them to pick themselves up and keep at it, just better than before.

Prepare yourself for Crazy and the King!
