Diverse Customer : Applause : Authentic Diversity, Celebrating Intersectionality and, The DiversityInc Top 50 2019
The reason for this post is more than just applause actually. Its also celebrating the intersectionality because many companies operate in silos. They give more precedence to one or two dimensions while ignoring the fact that authentic diversity is about thinking and acting intersectionally, how social identities intersect individually than in groups. For us, this quote from Kimberle Crenshaw is so apt in what we are trying to convey here:
"If you don't have a lens that's been trained to look at how various forms of discrimination come together, you're unlikely to develop a set of policies that will be as inclusive as they need to be."
