The end goal of inclusion is to create diversity.
I really don’t think so.
Get your pen and paper ready because I’m going to talk about the end goal of inclusion and why what I’m about to say may not be what you think.
In todays show we discuss several things including:
- Why People Don’t Really Care About Diversity & Inclusion
- What People Really Want In The Workplace
- The Transformation Needed For Us To Reach Our Inclusion Goals
Here’s some of what I share in the show:
The End Goal Is A Modern Meritocracy
“Meritocracy is a political term meaning that power is vested in the people based on talent, effort and achievement. We’re not talking politics here but if we borrow that term and put it in the workplace, I do like the idea of people being recognised and rewarded based on their talent, effort and achievement”
The End Goal Is An Organisation Where Everyone Performs
“Organisations exist for a reason and regardless of if you’re in the private sector, public sector or work in non-profits, in order for your organisation to continue to exist you need a sustainable way to produce products and services that people want and need. To make that happen you need people to perform.”
The End Goal Is An Organisation Where Everyone Belongs
“This is a tricky one, should people accept you as you are. In terms of your social identity, absolutely. Being, Indian, being LGBT, having a disability, these things should not prevent you from enjoying a successful career. We should all be allowed to bring our best self into the workplace and a modern meritocracy will not only accommodate it, they will seek it.”
