Getting Comfortable with your discomfort
A Diversity, Equity, and inclusion discussion
Diversity is not a bad word; it is an important word and may prove to be a strategic advantage to your business and your team.
Some companies have been focusing on DE&I for decades, and some decided that DE&I was important post the George Floyd incident. Truth be told, statistics show that companies that focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are more likely to perform better.
Your people are the most valuable asset in business, and people are diverse. Some people are Black, Brown, short, heavy, immigrant, wheelchair dependent, Muslim, poor, young, LGBTQ, and the list goes on. The one thing they all have in common is that they are all people, just like you and me. If the differences you see in people make you uncomfortable, ask yourself, “is it them or is it me?”
If you are not comfortable with the differences you see in people, they may get in the way of your ability to create an inclusive environment. As leaders and organizations, we move the mark when we become comfortable with our discomfort.
Help you understand what diversity means you.
Explore leadership tips on how to become comfortable with our discomfort.
