There’s good news and bad news about DEI
To say that a lot has happened in 2020 is an epic understatement. The good news is that recent and ongoing events have opened more people’s eyes, ears and hearts to the profound threat that racism and oppressive ways of living and working pose to our individual and collective survival. This presents a real opportunity for positive evolution and the motivation to truly co-create a world that works better for more of us.
However, the bad news is that there aren’t enough professionals in the field to meet this demand — just ask your local current-overbooked DEI (diversity, equity & inclusion) practitioner! Also, there aren’t enough professionals that are adequately equipped to meet this demand effectively. There’s too much of the old ways of doing, and new ways of doing with old ways of being.
Neither one is going to work.
