DEI might not include diversity of thought
I think most people by now are familiar with DEI trainings and what they are supposed to be about. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, on their face, have an awful lot of merit. In the work I've done with this podcast though, we are seeing far too many instances where these programs are being hijacked by "woke" ideology and an almost militant "anti-racist orthodoxy". Unfortunately, many who are working for the cause of diversity, equity and inclusion, are now ostracized for not "towing the line" as it is defined by the woke and militant. It turns out, DEI might not include diversity of thought.
