Treating all of your employees equally may seem like an ideal approach. But it's not.
The one-size-fits-all approach, says Minal Bopaiah, an expert in diversity, equity and inclusion, often holds back employees who don’t fit the prototypical characteristics of today’s workforce.
The better approach, Minal tells host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart, is to design a human-centered organization that offers “equity” to everyone — making room for those who are different and then leveraging those disparities.
Minal is the author of Equity: How to Design Organizations Where Everyone Thrives, an eye-opening new book that will challenge your perspective on fairness and productivity in the workplace. Her firm, Brevity & Wit, helps organizations — including Amnesty International, NPR, The Christian Science Monitor, and Human Rights Watch — achieve the change they wish to see in the world.
