Diversity & Inclusion:
Why Differences are Important
The following is an excerpt from a recent e-mail that I received from an attorney who is a frequent reader of this column: “Don’t you feel that your work and your writing actually make the differences you seek to erase stand out with greater force? By continuing to focus on differences, are you not, in fact, making the differences stronger than they would be if no one discussed them?”
Since I am so often asked the questions (or similar variants) posed by this reader, this column is a response that addresses both the questions specifically as well as the implications underlying the questions.
