Verna Myers said "Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusivity is being asked to dance". The discussion around diversity is one that has been ongoing for a number of years now, but recent studies show that this push for diversity targets simply isn't enough. To truly make the breakthrough for diversity, and to reap the benefits diversity brings, it is time to shift the focus of our discussions to inclusivity.
