Busted: Five Common Myths About Diversity And Inclusion In the Workplace Edited

Jodi LeBlanc Community Leader Nov 28, 2019

I just read this article by Sarah Liu, busting five common myths about Diversity and Inclusion. It was the first time I had heard the term ‘Artificial harmony’. It is the idea that diverse and inclusive practices are prominent in certain sectors of an organisation or people, but are largely misunderstood by the majority. As a result, society has constructed myths around what it really means to strive for diversity and inclusion based on superficial training and discussions.

Here is the full article, would love to hear your thoughts.

This was a great article, and I found myself bound to some of those myths.

The biggest one I'm guilty of is the "office cultural fit" myth. The solution is something I had heard many times before, but hadn't even applied it to this bias! We must think about what people can add to the culture, not how they fit in the culture.

Well said @Kerry Wano - I agree, it's all about what people can add to the culture, instead of trying to make them fit.
