Diversity, Part 6. The Who, What, When, Where, Why, And How

by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Diversity and Inclusion are both process and outcome.  The process of Diversity is a steady increase in the number of underrepresented minorities (URM) and women in all organizations (e.g., higher education, media, business, non-profits, government).  The process of Inclusion requires an increase in the number of URM and women in the higher echelons, the decision-making levels, of organizations.  These two processes, to achieve full Diversity and Inclusion, should continue until a reasonable approximation of parity is achieved, namely, half for women and proportional for URM to their share of the overall population.

Raghuram Rajan: How Markets And The State Leave The Community Behind

featuring Raghuram Rajanvia Brookings Institution
Wednesday, February 6, 2019

As markets are embedded in a web of human relations, values and norms, they are impacted by human events. Indeed, throughout history, technological advancements have displaced the market from its traditional webs, precipitating sometimes violent backlashes and periods of surging populism. Currently, the strain of globalization and technological shift is both reflecting and exacerbating the polarizing political tensions so evident around the world today.
