Here are some key takeaways from this episode

They have a critical mass of knowledge

“There’s a critical mass of knowledge. Having that allows you to select, to choose to decide. Without it, you’re part of the problem instead of being part of the solution because it makes the inclusion journey of everyone around you longer instead of shorter”

They interpret based on skilled contributors

“they draw together approaches, techniques, perspectives in order to create meaning from people who are highly trained and highly skilled”

They have taste based on their critical thinking

“anyone who has taste, has developed it over time, they’ve thought about it, it’s particular to them, their knowledge and experiences.”
