For D & I To Stick, We All Must Become Consciously Unbiased.
Can you imagine a workplace where humans are actually conscious of their inherent biases?
We’ve heard the term “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” However, for diversity and inclusion (D & I) initiatives to stick, the “whole must be equal to the sum of its parts.” By that we mean actionable D & I change requires more than organizational commitment. It requires an effort by individuals equal to that of the organization to propel meaningful behavioral change.
Biases Can Be Cured with Curiosity
Biases are much more complicated than the categories protected by Title VII.The lack of understanding of these complexities can be an obstacle in strategic D & I implementation and HR departments should be aware.
