Why Diversity & Inclusion Leaders Need To Be Fact Checked

Not all the claims you hear about Diversity & Inclusion are true.

Maybe there’s a need for some fact checking.

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking about why we may need some fact checking when it comes to Diversity & Inclusion

This is the first in a two-part series on the truth

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • The disturbing discovery I made recently
  • A habit I have that you don’t want to see
  • An important issue about misinformation and much more

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

People are ill informed

“Anyone who tells you this is ill informed, I’m not talking about making a mistake, we’re all human. I’m talking about being ill informed.”

 People pass off opinions as facts

“it’s important to distinguish between the two. I do my best to do that here. We spend a lot of time dispelling the received wisdom and separating opinions from facts.”

People don’t always have your best interests at heart

“Not everyone believes the intention to be inclusive or the reasons for it. My client work tells me that  people are desperate to hear the truth.”
