Is it more about diversity or inclusion?

    I wonder if leaders should inspire others to be other-centered AS WELL AS self-centered... b/c human nature is such that we all do what is in our own best interest.

    This is even recognized as necessary in some instances: airlines will tell you (adult) to put your mask on before helping your child or someone else (and this is the important part) b/c if you don't take care of yourself first you can't help anyone else.

    Inclusion and diversity can be good things. They can also be bad things. It mostly depends on in what way are they being used, and for what purpose.

    If they are being used to truly better a company - that is good. If they are merely being used to tick a box - that is bad.

    And I cant help but picture the Borg when I hear the word "inclusion" b/c they were all about it! LOL.

    All in all, a rather insightful post.

  • Did the session on diversity and inclusion address the issue of institutional or systemic racism?
