3 of My Personal Inclusion Dilemmas

Every week I talk about what you can do about inclusion, about your inclusion dilemmas

It may seem like a never-ending list I’ve created for you

But what do I struggle with, what are my inclusion dilemmas?

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about 3 of My Personal Inclusion Dilemmas

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • Some personal dilemmas I’ve had on my Inclusion Journey
  • How my values inform my day to day decisions
  • The money I could be losing because of my actions and much more

Here’s some of what we discuss on the show:

You’re not the only one with dilemmas about inclusion

 “I talk about how I’ve got a PhD in your problems. You may be forgiven for thinking that means that I don’t have any problems, I don’t have any dilemmas when it comes to diversity and inclusion. This simply isn’t true”

 I’ve had to rely on my values to inform my decisions about inclusion

“If I claim I’m acting in your best interests,  If I claim I want to protect you from those who would mislead you and misrepresent to you

If I claim I want you to think of me as your number one trusted advisor. Then it might be useful for you to know and understand my intentions”

I’m writing a book to support you with your inclusion dilemmas

“Now, to put this into context, this means a lot to me personally. Yes, I’ve written a PhD, yes it’s a book on my shelf, but I wouldn’t describe myself as an author”
