Like a Happy Days episode from days gone by, I teased this topic into a “To Be Continued” two-parter. In case you need to re-visit last week’s episode, you’re now hooked up:
In this episode David gives some in-the-workplace application to encourage robust, difficult, and necessary conversations as a company. We discuss bias vs. barriers, inclusion vs. philanthropy, and the reality that a company divided cannot stand.
Do a quick scan of your internal diversity and inclusion programs, do they pass the litmus test?
- Make the company more successful
- Are apolitical
When faced with inequities are you focusing on solutions at the root level or punishing those in control.Also a reminder to look past the data to discover systemic issues rather than react to the outward manifestations. Damn those tall people.
In any event, get your ears on and take a listen…how bad could it possibly be?
