The Fallacy Problem of Diversity & Inclusion

The thing about Diversity and Inclusion.

Everyone sounds so convincing

Maybe it’s because of all the fallacies

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about the Fallacy problem of Diversity and Inclusion

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • Why Fallacies are relevant for Inclusion
  • 3 Fallacies for you to avoid
  • How Fallacies are related to the 3 Biggest Problems

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

A Fallacy is an error in reasoning 

“A fallacy is a mistake, an error a flaw in reasoning. It means the basis of the argument or the claim is unsound.

Strong arguments don’t have any fallacies.  Weak arguments often rely on fallacies to make them appear stronger than they are”

Diversity and Inclusion narratives rely heavily on Fallacies 

This is a huge problem for Diversity and Inclusion. too many people rely on fallacies when talking about diversity and Inclusion. It’s not always easy to spot.”

Relying on Fallacies undermines everything you say

“Diversity Fallacies kill your engagement, I’ve seen this happen so many times. I want you to avoid it”
