Diversity

Diversity is a hot topic right now. There are countless media reports suggesting that certain organisations, be it the government or big business, are underrepresented compared to the rest of the population. Sadly we are still talking about gender inequality, let alone addressing the gap in race, age or sexuality. Instead we implement token diversity policies and catastrophize the impact of the few refugees we receive in Australia.

I was snapped by the #createwelcome initiative (check it out www.createwelcome.com) during the week. The three letters I constructed were the result of a question I’ve been asking myself ….. how can we actively design for diversity that can enrich us?

Two initiatives I’ve recently come across start to address this question:

Both these initiatives are examples of designing for and embracing diversity in order to enrich a city or business.

The specific benefits for a business with a diverse workforce include incorporating different perspectives, increased creativity, challenging established assumptions, and greater representation of your customer base leading to better experiences and new opportunities.

Lets embrace diversity through the use of creative problem solving.
