Decide Diversity exists to fill the gaps traditional diversity and inclusion programs create. Most organizations focus on increasing the representation and improving the experience of a few groups, yet very few people identify with just one underrepresented group! People are multidimensional and these dimensions can be uncovered and utilized through curiosity and exploration. Through our many products and services, we guide leaders towards an improved diversity and inclusion program.
We create and deliver powerful presentations and workshops that demonstrate the principles of intersectionality in the world and in business. The personalized presentations are informative, inclusive, and provide action steps for leaders to take to make measurable improvements in their organization.
As leaders in the field of diversity and inclusion, we serve those who are sincere about improvement. We work side by side with business leaders to strategize and execute detailed plans to make a significant difference.
There are hidden figures in every industry and organization. Their voices are muted and their lights dimmed due to the way they look, sound, or their background. We fight for their right to exist. We fight for their right to lead. We fight for their right to be themselves. We fight for their right to be successful.
Today's version of diversity covers, among other groups: women, people of color, differently-abled, veterans, and LGBTQ. We incorrectly assume that every person who identifies with one of these groups experiences the world and workplace similarly. People are complex and rarely identify with only one group.
It's time to expand our definition of diversity and get back to its roots: uniqueness and individuality. It's time to talk about intersectionality.
The Table of Diversity reminds us of our multiple identities and how they inform our thoughts and perspectives.
