Old Guard vs. New Guard

In this audio, listen as a Black woman describes the challenges she has faced in her position and how she has faced pushback when trying to bring in new ideas. She has found that in this company in particular, there has been more resistance to new and “fresh” perspectives. More established and experienced people in the company who have been there for many years prefer to keep things the same which can make her job difficult.
