It’s said that you have to speculate to accumulate

But what if this Inclusion stuff is just a huge gamble?

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about 5 Reasons Why Diversity & Inclusion Is Like Investing In the Stock Market

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • How dollar cost averaging relates to Inclusion
  • How to avoid being left holding the bag when it comes to Diversity
  • The parallels between Diversity & Inclusion narratives and the stock market and much more

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

Do your own homework  

“Organisations, leaders, people like you don’t do their homework, they’re not prepared. they don’t think for themselves”

Include a regular defined commitment in your strategy

“Think of what you’re going to commit to and how frequently you’re going to commit to it.”

Don’t believe the hype

“International Women’s Day, Black History Month, Pride. I’m not denigrating any of these things. But there is a lot of hype, I’ve seen it, you’ve seen it”
