Many people think that if you can build a case on global diversity, things will shift and improve. That’s not necessarily true. The reality is that a lot more work needs to be done.
In the interview below with McKinsey’s Rik Kirkland, Harvard Kennedy School professor of public policy Iris Bohnet talks about what is working—and what is not—when it comes to building a more equitable workplace. An edited version of her remarks follows.
Here’s a snippet on one of Kirkland’s remarks relative to diversity and inclusion:
Based on that evidence, maybe we shouldn’t be quite as shocked that diversity training doesn’t have the impact that we were hoping it could have. Because even though you and I might agree now that we will be inclusive tomorrow, it is hard to follow through on those virtuous intentions.
