Interesting. Maybe this perspective is missing some basics.
The US government and many academic institutions stress being inclusive. That is great. But being inclusive for inclusive sake is hollow.
Academic institutions have a very diverse faculty with recognized expertise. But yet do you see academic institutions leading by example on how to provide more relevant learning opportunities to students with less funding using new technology?
The US government has a very diverse representation at all levels. Yet waste, fraud, and abuse is still rampant. Figure pointing and excuse making rules when initiatives aren’t effective.
Maybe what is missing is a true vision, specific goals, accountability, and an attitude of ‘what else can we do to help’ mentality ingrained in a high-performance culture that naturally embraces inclusion. Dictates don’t work. Dictates make great copy only.
