The Future of Inclusion and Diversity in Business

Futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews special guests Alison Maitland and Rebekah Steele, authors of INdivisible: Radically rethinking inclusion for sustainable business results.

We talk about why both inclusion and diversity, separately and together matter to the bottom line. We discuss the sensitive aspects of white male earned privilege and how many of us experience a combination of privileges and disadvantages that can link us all on a common journey. We discuss why they are soaring now compared to a decade ago, what approaches deliver results that matter, what the metrics are and where we go from here.

The takeaway is that unless diversity is understood widely—as a competitive asset—those organizations that are lucky enough to have it are likely not monetizing it. As for inclusion, it’s important far beyond the fairness aspect, it turns out all of us have aspects that may lead us to be excluded from something unless society explicitly mandates being inclusive. Again, the benefits are tangible and important. As for where we go from here: it is both an individual and a collective responsibility, but the issues are squarely on the agenda, now we just need smart ways to make progress.
