Humans have an insatiable need for connection and communication. Storytelling is in our DNA. It’s how we make sense of the world. And this is equally the case in a work environment.
When the concept of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI – yes, someone has a sense of humour and/or a love of Star Wars!) is raised, often the default position of most companies is to roll out their shiny, carefully crafted Diversity and Inclusion Policy/Statement and submit it as evidence that they’re an employer of choice.
The world is going through a gigantic change and at its core is the need to build community in all aspects of our lives. To do this successfully we need to listen, learn and grow from the experiences of the past to create a more inclusive future.
