ACJ 14032022Diversity and Inclusion to me is now beyond definitions of the concepts but implementation for shared value and growth for all. It is about a nonjudgmental seeing and appreciation of the uniqueness of the other person in a community or organization. It is about enabling the finding of the gold nuggets in them that are different from one’s own and allowing them to serve the whole.

 

Diversity and inclusion thrive in an atmosphere of …
I see you without judgement, sawubona, and I celebrate you although you are different from me. I see you as a valuable subset of the whole.

It invokes
A sense of acceptance and a sense of belonging; ‘I too am seen and am valued.’

It fosters
A sense of a fair playing field, that is, all voices have something of value to contribute towards organizational goals for success.
A buy-in by all for success, a sense that is a safe place to contribute.

It results in
Innovation without reserve
Unity, despite differences, as a house divided cannot stand
Ambassadors for your cause.

A word of caution
What does not get measured does not succeed. From the executives to the latest incumbent, all must have adapted KPIs on the matter!

And finally …
The bottom line will be a given.
