Verna Myers said "Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusivity is being asked to dance". The discussion around diversity is one that has been ongoing for a number of years now, but recent studies show that this push for diversity targets simply isn't enough. To truly make the break through for diversity, and to reap the benfits diveristy brings, it is time to shift the focus of our discussions to inclusivity.
With remote working on the rise and its impact on mental health, this will become ever more important. It is important for us to see this as a way to pave opportunities for females, minorities and those with disabilities to gain more senior roles in the future, but we must also be wary of the challenges remote working will also bring to our mental health if inclusivity is not considered.
