Here’s some key takeaways from this episode:

1/3 of people I asked thought it was possible to be an expert by reading 3 books

“In a 21st century media driven context it’s possible for people to become experts by reading 3 books. Maybe the poll was right ”

Experts in the Diversity and Inclusion space are following this model

“I think people are becoming Diversity experts by reading 3 books. Maybe it’s 5 books, maybe it’s 10 books. My point is.. it’s a light touch”

Expertise indicates inequality in more ways than you think

““Expert” in this context means being a few steps ahead of the audience. Sometimes that’s ok”
