Guild Launches Podcast, Opportunity Divide, Hosted by CEO Rachel Romer with Special Guest Adam Grant

With visionary thought leaders Brené Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, Daniel Pink, Geoffrey Canada, and Ken Chenault, the podcast puts America’s workforce at the center of business-critical conversations

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Guild, the leader in opportunity creation for America’s workforce, announced the launch of its first podcast, Opportunity Divide, hosted by Guild CEO Rachel Romer, and special guest Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Give and Take, and organizational psychologist at Wharton. In the six-part series, Romer and Grant will discuss with changemakers what motivates workers, how employers can best help them succeed, and what models of collaboration will work best as the future of work comes into sharper focus.

With employee engagement sliding and unemployment rates at some of the lowest in history, business and people leaders are seeking answers about how to manage their workforce and create long-term value in their organizations. Opportunity Divide brings new insights to address the changes in today’s workforce and unpack how forward-thinking companies can adapt – with the goal of shrinking the divide.

America’s workforce is reckoning with a widening disconnect between employees and employers that’s driving a wedge in our world. Everyone has something to be gained from a more equitable society, but many of today’s leaders aren’t equipped with the tools and support to make that happen in the workplaces they lead,” said Guild CEO and host Rachel Romer. “Bridging the divide and unlocking access to greater opportunity for employees has been our mission from the start, and we’re excited to make that vision even more accessible by bringing fresh perspectives to the table – in this podcast and beyond – to drive shared value for employees and employers alike.”

The six-part series, airing weekly, begins June 6 with a two episode release. The first episode will kick off with special guest Adam Grant and the second features a conversation with renowned professor and author Dr. Brené Brown where she discusses vulnerability, empathy, and trust — and what role they can play in solving the challenges of the future of work. Additional guests this season include bestselling authors Malcolm Gladwell and Daniel Pink, Chairman and Managing Director of the venture capital firm General Catalyst, former Chairman and CEO of American Express Ken Chenault, and Geoffrey Canada, President of Harlem Children’s Zone​.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to grow and succeed at work – that’s a win for people as well as organizations,” said organizational psychologist and recurring special guest Adam Grant. “I’m excited that this podcast explores new avenues for upward mobility that are vital to creating a better future of work.”
