Using Six Sigma to Address Racial Equity with Joy Mason – Lean Six Sigma for Good

In a recent interview, Joy Mason, CEO and founder of Optimist Business Solutions discusses her background in continuous improvement, what led to the creation of The Six Sigma Racial Equity Institute™ (SSREI), along with some project examples.

SSREI is an innovative leadership program designed to upskill Black Women to be complex problem solvers.

She also discusses the importance of data, especially for identifying and reducing inequities. She discusses some of the books she’s written and why she wrote them. She also provides excellent suggestions for others looking to tackle equity issues in their company or local community by focusing on processes, instead of trying to drive out bias from every individual.
