'A Vision without a Strategy remains an Illusion'

-Lee Bolman-

-Diversity is a Fact-

-Inclusion is an Act-

-Equity must be Exact-





THE Diversity Business Case:

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, the U.S. will be a 'Minority/Majority' nation in the 2040s. As a result, leveraging Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be a 'core competency' and 'critical success factor' for people to better navigate and co-exist in an increasingly diverse society and world. Those who will be successful will ensure they are not on the wrong side of the DEI paradigm shift.

THE Problem: Diversity case studY

Harvard Business Review: DEI is under Attack! In 2023, the Supreme Court ended race-based affirmative action in higher education in the Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) case. In 2024, newly empowered anti-DEI activist groups have brought a barrage of challenges against workplace DEI efforts. Major companies are being slapped with formal complaintslitigation, and threatening letters.

correlation between diversity, equity, inclusion, and success.
