3 Reasons Why Diversity & Inclusion Is Like Reality TV

There’s an emerging similarity between Diversity & Inclusion and Reality TV and it’s not all good news

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about how Diversity and Inclusion is beginning to look like the Dark Side of Reality TV

In todays show we discuss several things including:

  • Why Diversity & Inclusion encourages drama
  • Why Diversity & Inclusion is staged
  • Why Diversity & Inclusion can commoditise people and much more

Here’s some of what I share in the show

The Strong Narrative and Drama

“it dramatizes the lived experiences of what is supposed to be everyday people, people who aren’t professionally trained”

The Performative Nature

What are the roles being played when minority groups discuss their lived experience, what if it’s only ever in a particular way?”

It is Cheap

“I’m the first person to say that to create Diversity and Inclusion is not as expensive as organisations think, a lot of money and resources are wasted. It can be done for a lot less than organisations think”
