If 2016 brought us anything, it’s the death of the status quo. If 2016 has taught us anything, it’s that those of us who have a progressive vision for the workplace — and humanity in general — must change our tactics. Evolutionary leaders committed to increasing diversity, equity and inclusiveness in American workplaces aren’t exempt. Nothing less than a safe, abundant and mutually prosperous future is at stake.
One tactic that needs to change is how we think, speak, and act around diversity and inclusiveness. Voices that have been emboldened by President-elect Donald Trump, plus a series of articles published this summer in the Harvard Business Review, are the most recent jury that’s delivered a landmark verdict: “Old school” diversity approaches don’t work.

Management guru W. Edwards Deming once said, “Learning is not compulsory. Neither is survival.” To survive we must adapt to new information and new realities.
Just as it’s clear (in dozens of studies) that New School Diversity works, it’s clear the Old School way has outlived its usefulness, and we must evolve. Courageous leaders and visionary organizations are already evolving, and leveraging the brilliance and excellence unleashed by a commitment to New School Diversity.
