When did you feel that you were different than society expected from you? How did you deal with it?

How do you feel and react when nowadays someone doesn’t accept you as you are? Do you have a strategy for people who may face the same?

Why does diversity & inclusion matter in business life?

“Inclusion is important because as a human race we like our tribes and communities we like to know our place in society. When we feel included then we matter, we have a voice, we are respected — this is a basic human need.”

Why do you think Transgender Awareness is especially important?

Companies sometimes argue that diversity & inclusion matters for them due to performance or financial reasons. Is this fine with you or do you think it must go beyond this thinking?

“You can’t be a bit inclusive, in the same way, you can’t be a bit pregnant or a bit of a virgin”.

What are the most important steps when jumpstarting diversity & inclusion efforts?

“When employees truly believe they are valued and listened to then this true sense of belonging will evolve.”

What would be your vision/ wish when it comes to diversity & inclusion?
