Module 7 discussion: diversity, inclusivity, equity and allyship at


Context: As increased attention is given to the realities of structural racism and sexism in American culture, organizations are increasingly focused on diversifying talent, creating a mission of anti-racism and equity, and hiring a workforce that is trained to think about the value of diversity, inclusivity, and equity at work.  In “Do your Employees Know Why You Believe in Racial Equity,” Ruchika Tulshyan asserts that “done right, creating diverse, equitable, inclusive organizations yield greater profitability, innovation, and smarter teams.”  In other words, a commitment to inclusion and equity is critical to organizational success. 

This post asks you to reflect on the value of diversity, inclusivity and equity at work and the ways in which you can be a more effective ally.  Finally, you will consider resources on anti-descrimination policies so that you are better equipped to advocate for yourself and your colleagues in the workplace.

  • What are the benefits of diverse and inclusive workplaces? Why, does Stovall suggest, is business a critical place to dismantle racism?
  • What is the difference between inclusion and diversity? What do you think organizations, their leaders, and their employees can do to cultivate a culture of inclusion?
