Your observations are consistent wth my experience, although I am more radical in my diagnosis than an acceptable term of a “leadership lid”. My view is deeper into the privileged corporate legal structure and protected financial incentives that silently shape the atmosphere of the typical business heirarchy and distort decisions and resources toward greed and short term thinking. Translation: There is a reason for the hesitation and basis against diversity (in people and thinking) except in limited controlled situations — why? It keeps the status quo in place and that is good those who are controlling the levers. In most situations, diversity is too dynamic, too inclusive, too relational and scary, up close personal to fit into the short-term extractive machine of captialism. You describe the tip of the iceberg that, unseen, destroyed the Titanic.
