Is there a way to approach diversity that is effective across many cultures and sectors, while at the same time helping us to understand the impact of our own biases on our work? Listen in as two practitioners informed by very different backgrounds and experiences explore this question. Diversity and leadership consultant Duncan Smith, interviewed by Hala Abdelnour, sees five "Foundations of Diversity" as essential guides for both newcomers to the field and experienced practitioners. Refined and tested across a wide range of corporate, government, and non-profit clients over nearly 30 years, in both "Western" and "non-Western" countries, this is an approach that is practical, relevant, and engaging.
