Embrace Diversity & Inclusion: The Top D&I Must-Reads For 2019

By Rebecca Schulte | February 25, 2019

We publish a lot of information around Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging. It’s already well-established just how important and meaningful these topics are. When it comes to actioning workplace solutions around D&I, a commitment to continuous learning is essential. It’s important to know what you don’t know, and proactively self-educate.

Let’s start off with some tips and guidelines for this mindset, and then you’ll see a thorough list of readings and resources you can leverage as you continue to develop your understanding of and relationship with D&I.

Tips & Guidelines


  • Air On The Side Of Curiosity

Having an opinion isn’t the only way to participate in the conversation. If you’re not confident in a subject relating to D&I, get curious about it.

  • Avoid Making Assumptions

Try not to make assumptions about someone else’s opinion, someone else’s personal experience or someone else’s identity.

  • Continuous Learning Is Key

D&I is a popular topic, and consequently, there is a breadth of educational information available for your consumption (up next!).

  • Think About The Context

D&I doesn’t exist in a vacuum – priorities, focuses, or perceptions around D&I can depend on culture/nationality/demographic. For example, a Deloitte study revealed that millennials define D&I very differently than other generations.
