Your Enterprise Diversity
You can simply look around. Does the diversity of people match the diversity of your target markets and customers?
My clients at GM talked about this in the mid-1990s when some at the top started to wake up.
“As vehicle design becomes more sophisticated, automakers are eager to bring more women into studios, because they often bring different influences and perspectives to the table.” – https://www.wired.com/2010/07/women-in-auto-design/
And … “”The speed of disruption in automotive is accelerating at a historic pace,” Randall Miller, EY’s Global Automotive and Transportation Sector leader said in a press statement. “Having the right talent in place to support this disruption is mission critical. With a billion women joining the economy for the first time by 2020, advancing gender diversity can be a major competitive advantage to auto industry players.”” – https://www.cnbc.com/2016/04/28/are-women-in-the-driving-seat-yet.html

Your Network Diversity
You can simply look around. Does the diversity of people in your network have real diversity? In their obvious looks/surface image? In their shared thinking? In their educational and experience backgrounds?
“We know our relationships with people with perspectives that are unlike our own will enrich our personal lives.

Diversity Makes Personal Sense
Your Thinking Diversity
You can simply look around – at what you share of your own thoughts and the thoughts of others that you saw worth of retweeting/reposting.
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” – Aristotle
