diversity & inclusion

From Comment Crusader to Cultural Steward

If the training had left some people out, the workplace would too. Relying on shame and dehumanization — however subtle or justified — as motivating tools of change will never resolve the patterns of isolation and exclusion we seek to address. They created those patterns in the first place. Viewing Diversity & Inclusion as an us vs. them quest to change some people's minds on behalf of others will not create the engaged, productive workforce we seek. It will only continue to amplify the feeling of uneasy disconnection that characterizes so many workplaces today.
