Inclusion

Research shows that inclusive companies are more successful. But what can we do in our day-to-day work? Interesting HBR article giving some ideas on how to make meetings more inclusive.

Gender

Last week Forbes published the Top 100 most innovative leaders – and out of those 100, 99 are men! People turned to social media to voice their anger, and Forbes has now apologized and said the methodology used was flawed. Read more here.

Gender Equality

A world where women are making more money than men? Toymaker Hasbro has just announced that in their new game “Ms. Monopoly”, the gender pay gap is being reversed. Reactions on social media are mixed, with some people commenting that these rules devalue women.

Diversity

If you haven’t done so yet, please start watching the National Geographic documentary series Activate: The Global Citizen movement. Sponsored by companies like P&G and featuring stars like Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Hugh Jackman, the series looks at various issues connected to poverty, like gender equality and racial bias.
