Diversity of thought, life experiences, and belief systems is what makes organizations stronger. The fittest ideas can flourish, and greater numbers of people benefit. If the room you’re in looks like you, you’re not learning enough. You’ll feel comfortable and perhaps nourished, but you will not find enrichment. For that, you need new voices. Younger. Older. Paler. Darker. Wealthy. Impoverished. Make room at your table, or find room at theirs.
