With no reason to change, change remains an empty word.

Late last year, I was making a presentation at a leadership conference about the most recent research on diversity and inclusion when one of the conference attendees raised his hand and asked me to just tell him “how to get this done.” In a frustrated tone, he told me that he didn’t want to hear about research or case studies, he just wanted a quick summary of how he could make his organization more diverse and inclusive.
