For decades, employers have implemented diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives in hopes of broadening their workforces to include more women and ethnic minorities. From anti-bias training to quotas for leadership and boards, the government and the private sector have sought to socially engineer workplaces to achieve goals of representation and parity. Such a narrow focus on skin color and gender misses true diversity–diversity of experiences and viewpoints. We’ll tackle tough questions about the pitfalls, costs, and unintended consequences of DEI initiatives. We’ll also probe whether DEI is on the way out and other ways that society can ensure everyone has a shot at opportunity.
