Mind the Inclusion Gap
Diversity programmes are everywhere. But despite all the intention and focus, progress is painfully slow. Homophobia, transphobia, racism and misogyny remain stubbornly pervasive, and unfortunately, many inclusion programmes do more to create negativity toward the diversity agenda than they do to bring about measurable and lasting change.
Why isn’t change happening more rapidly? What are we doing wrong? Or better yet, what should we be doing differently if we want to drive different outcomes?
There is a significant rise in expectations around inclusion, but very few people know what inclusion is, or how to do it. Most of us are curious about diversity, and some would go so far as to call ourselves allies, but very few of us are skilled in inclusion. In the absence of knowing what to do, we double down on being nice and hope that will be enough. Unfortunately, this optimistic attitude may harm as much as help.
Mind the Inclusion Gap is designed to help readers move beyond fleeting (and often divisive) interactions and provide them with a solid grounding in the facts and evidence around diversity. It allows individuals a chance to hear the stories of ‘others’, to think through how the messier aspects of how inclusion, and to understand how it all makes us feel. Ultimately, it aims to help individuals be more confident, capable and conscious allies who play an active role in shaping an inclusive future.
