Less than two-tenths of one percent . . .
When I was asked to write an Op-Ed on diversity, my immediate thought was ‘piece of cake’, quote some statistics that frame the disparity of inclusion and the piece will write itself. Statistics, however, tend to validate what we already believe, they inform us rather than shape us. To be meaningful, statistics should move the needle on our value-meter. They should incite motion when we’re in idle. But sometimes we just want to idle, it’s easy, sit there and do nothing while you wait. As I thought about this piece it became apparent that in order to write about diversity, I need to touch on the biases that tend to shape our views on the diversity, otherwise I might just be idling.
