Prof Selo Ndlovu 10022022We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.”
— Jimmy Carter

Diversity and inclusion to me is more than policies, programmes, quotas or political correctness. It is about realising that an organisational workforce is made up of different individuals, and, accepting, understanding and respecting the different perspectives, cultures, identities, values and ideas of all these diverse individuals. It is about positively channelling that diversity and choosing to integrate it within the organisation for the growth and development of not only the organisation, but, also for that of the relevant individuals in their careers. Thus, diversity and inclusion to me, means, practicing mutual respect for qualities and experiences that are different to our own and building of alliances across those differences in order to contribute to the creation of an environment that can cohesively work towards the growth and development of an organization and the professionals working within.
