Acknowledging Inequity

“If every executive carries a hammer, it might not occur to them that some jobs need a screwdriver.”

This quote from the Economist beautifully encapsulates the kinds of blind spots that permeate organisational cultures, resulting in systemic inequity and exclusion. While the messages in this article are not new —  “the existence of hidden biases shows that the paying field in not level” – it’s encouraging to see clear, evidence-based acknowledgment of systemic bias becoming more widespread. 

If we genuinely want to create inclusive cultures, acknowledging the inequity is the first step.
