The New What, Why and How of Diversity and Inclusion
While nearly everything about business and how business is done has changed in the past couple of decades, little has changed about our approach to and our understanding of diversity and inclusion. We can ill afford to continue taking a 20th century approach to this set of issues which are increasingly critical to 21st century business.
There are certainly a lot more folks saying the right things about diversity and inclusion today, but why is there so little real action? While we sometimes assume that this is because of resistance, a great deal of it actually stems from confusion around what diversity and inclusion really mean in business context of today and why they matter.
