7 Reasons Why Working in Diversity & Inclusion is Not For You

I talk a lot about why Inclusion is for everyone

But I don’t think working in Inclusion is for everyone

Get your pen and paper ready because I’m going to give you  7 Reasons Why Working in Inclusion may not be for you

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • A common question listeners to the show ask me
  • Why giving is important for those who work in Inclusion
  • An unpopular opinion about Inclusion work and much more

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

Working in Inclusion is not for everyone

“My strong opinion is that if any of what I’m about to say applies to you then working in Inclusion may not be for you”

Working in Inclusion is rewarding yet uncomfortable

“Creating Inclusion may create conflict with history or the present and others are invested in history and the present. Telling people is not always a popular task.”

Working in Inclusion will require you to change in ways you may not anticipate

“You may not want to see something in yourself you don’t like; What if you have to ask and answer uncomfortable questions?”
