3 Ways to Address The Free Rider Problem of Diversity & Inclusion

There’s a massive issue with free riding when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion

Some people do the hard work and others benefit for free

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about 3 Ways to Address The Freerider Problem of Diversity & Inclusion

This is the second in a two-part series about unearned benefits

Last week we spoke about a career short cut that is devastating for inclusion if you haven’t already, make sure you check out that show

This week we’re talking about free riding but in a way you probably haven’t considered before.

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • An economic approach you haven’t considered
  • Why shared interests are so important to Inclusion
  • How to avoid a transactional approach to Inclusion and much more

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

Inclusion has features of a public good

 “During my conversation with Zoe, it felt as if  Zoe was thinking about Inclusion as a public good”

 Inclusion has free riders

 “Other people in the organisation would receive unearned benefits as a result of your actions you couldn’t  stop them.”

 Employee resource groups may be part of the solution 

we think of employee resource groups as an important part of the solution to the three biggest problems that organisations experience on their inclusion journey. People, Potential, Performance”
