For decades, people making the economic case for diversity have paid lip service to the idea without it paying off. We’ve made limited progress in the numbers of women in STEM, on boards, and in leadership roles; of men taking parental leave; the inclusion of gender-diverse people, and so on. This talk argues that the business case for diversity is stacked. Our societal myth of meritocracy doesn’t acknowledge how the basic notions of this concept are already inherently gendered. Hear how new research suggests we can accelerate progress by taking a moral and social justice approach on diversity.
