As a member of the "hard to find" club, I offer you an access card.
DEIB: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging
Today, let us focus on the "D" and the "E". For some reason, it's become trendy to fly over these two as quickly as possible to speak to the "I" and the "B". Metaphors like "being invited to the dance" are used. I actually never wanted to be "invited to the dance" at work — I took care of that myself on the weekends.
As the hardest working man in showbiz, James Brown, said, "I don't want nobody to give me nothin'. Just open up the door and I'll get it myself."
The "E": equity of opportunity, representation, compensation and well-being. It all starts with opportunity, then representation. This is where I inevitably hear, "But they are so hard to find."
Well, as someone who talks to hundreds of the "hard to find" every month, I have a Hispanic Heritage Month gift for you.
