Breaking Barriers, Building a Hire Ground

Breaking Barriers, Building a Hire Ground is a weekly podcast hosted by Hire Ground Founder and CEO, Cloe Guidry-Reed and diversity and inclusion leader Adam Moore. Each week we will have an in-depth discussion with procurement leaders and supplier diversity teams, successful suppliers, relevant associations, historians, and economists. We make the enterprise ecosystem more viable, profitable, and competitive by clearing the path for minority, women, LGBTQ, and veteran-led small businesses to contribute to the global economy as suppliers to corporations.
