Inclusion Over Diversity


Kenyona Matthews




Inclusion will actually CHANGE our rooms. Inclusion GIVES people the ability to express themselves authentically. The work of our society cannot focus on simply folks being in the room anymore. All people must have a voice, we need to listen to them, and then we must ACT. Much love. inclusion, and anti-racism. She is a University of Akron School of Law graduate who focused civil liberties.

Thank you very much.

Hello? Hi. So I'm a diversity chainer and I have to be honest with you, I hate diversity. Diversity to me is kind of like a fruit platter. All of the parts are present, all are represented, but they're kept separate. They're not involved in any meaningful. It looks cute. It looks good, but it's superficial.

People wanna make sure they have one Asian, a few black folks, throw in a couple ofwomen and sprinkle some other, and it's all good because that's diversity. The answer toracism. We don't have to do the real work. We don't have to make sure that those that we bring into the boardroom actually have a seat and a voice.
