This week’s curator, Christine Overby, looks at how to design for diversity; she also shares some Shift*Base Guides for firms that wish to become more inclusive and picks 5 links for further reading on the topic.

How do we design for diversity?

Being diverse is an active decision.
It requires both stamina and a systematic approach. Diversity programs and communities of interest are important. But they are the inputs to a diversity platform rather than its products.

I recently blogged about my personal learnings, as well as strategies and tactics that the Post*Shift team has successfully used to create inclusive organisations.

Diversity must become a core attribute of modern business, because it creates better outcomes. To make progress, we need diversity platforms, not just programs.

Shift*Base Guides

Shift*Base has some starting points for creating diversity platforms. For example, we can make more human workplaces with tactics like inclusive decision-making and social ways of working.
