Many leaders feel inadequate in addressing the topic of gender and race due to a lack of knowledge or general anxiety about talking about these types of issues. Historically, addressing inequity was seen as “their” job (not “ours”). However, these are cultural problems, and women and minorities alone cannot address them. This responsibility rests on those with the power to change business and social systems. Doing your part to promote diversity as a company makes sense from a business perspective (making sure the best talent is nurtured and engaged) and is also the right thing to do.
