The Context

We can better understand how inclusivity brings us together by understanding the places it can drive us apart.

This is a time in human history like never before. We are coming together and looking at the power structures between us, some of which have been in place for centuries, even millennia, and asking how these structures can be better understood inside our workplaces, homes, and relationships — in service of a better tomorrow.

More and more we are seeing our biases exposed, around race, gender, age, and many other variables. We want everyone to have an equal opportunity to be seen and honored as they are. Those who historically have not had a voice are asking that their unique struggles be heard, and acknowledged.

And yet, as we move towards greater inclusivity we’re also seeing some unintended consequences, such as:

  • Oppressive rules around speech and “political correctness”. There can seem to be a hypersensitivity to language and behavior that can create a culture of fear.
  • Endless processes of blame and accusation that don’t seem to ever resolve.
  • A victim-oppressor framework that doesn’t allow any other narratives to come forth.
  • The inversion of power hierarchies instead of their transformation (with a new group of oppressors at the top instead of no oppressors there).
  • Devaluing of assertiveness and aggressiveness that can breed innovation, both inside a team and with competitors.
  • Creating a talent drain as some leave rather than speak out.
  • A monoculture that only values a narrow range of attitudes, politics, personality types, and communication styles.
  • The demonization of those with differing views.
  • A focus on internal politics and policies which draws too much attention away from action and movement forward.

The Good News

The good news is these unintended consequences can be understood and addressed.

Inclusivity dogma can be transformed into a greater organizational intelligence that offers a genuine respect for differences, without creating a whole new set of challenges that end up driving people apart again.

As humans, we have a great deal in common with each other at the same time that we have significant differences. We need to understand and honor both, so that we can continue to live in a rich culture with of a full tapestry of human beings.

These skills — of seeing our sameness and of honoring our differences — can be taught and cultivated in ways that are inclusive and aware of historical and existing patterns of oppression — but don’t flatten or pathologize differences.

Inclusivity, as you will learn in this program, can become an even greater expression of care for one another and create a dynamic environment in which people can truly thrive. 

This custom learning experience (coaching and course) will teach you how to recognize and anticipate the common places where inclusivity can end up working against itself. There are specific skills and actions that can help you move an organization into a genuinely diverse space — where differences can be harnessed for greater creativity, team cohesion, and self-expression.
