Diversity & Inclusion • Four Quotes (November 2019)

November 30, 2019

“Diversity and inclusion are not the same things.  Diversity is a numbers game.  Inclusion is about impact.  Companies can mandate diversity, but they have to cultivate inclusion.”     Janet Stovall ‘85 (TED@UPS 2015)

“Diversity without inclusion is an empty gesture.  Inclusion is a feeling of belonging, and so creating an empowering, embracing, egalitarian environment starts with the heart.”     David Asai (Nature 01.29.19)

“Acknowledging implicit bias and promoting diversity and inclusion doesn’t only enable better science; it is a crucial first step for fixing a broken STEM culture.”     Kuheli Dutt (Scientific American 12.17.18)

“Diverse perspectives drive innovation.  Diverse young scientists frequently are successful because the enter a field and see the same old data in completely new ways.”     Ben Barres (The Autobiography of a Transgender Scientist 2018)
