They say diversity is being invited to the party, and inclusion is being asked to dance.
The world is beyond such one-dimensional definitions and ‘suggestions’.
Diversity is when everyone collectively decides what kind of party it is and where the party is to be held.
Inclusion is when everyone decides where they PERSONALLY want to sit and how they wish to enjoy the party.
Meaningful solutions to the challenges presented by homogeneity and group-think in leadership and persistent and restrictive success images in talent management is about removing systemic barriers.
It is about getting beyond the habitus of today’s outdated and often toxic patriarchal systems and reimagining, together, a balanced, inclusive future.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to creating inclusive, creative and thriving teams and workplaces. Inclusion is both a journey and a process, not a problem to solve, or an event to celebrate.
Those interested in removing systemic barriers to inclusion and fostering advancement for all in their organizations are invited to contact globaltmc international on maryatglobaltmc.com to start the dialogue on how transparency, honesty and equity can be put to work with, by and for you and your employees.
