'diversity' is a euphemism. we should be careful how we use it


as peter capaldi departs “doctor who,” some hope his replacement will increase the show's diversity. after “wonder woman” was released, some were disappointed that diverse amazons didn't receive more screen time. a recent study found that films with diverse casts do better than films with casts that are less diverse.whether critics are calling for more representation of women, people of color or other marginalized groups, "diversity" is a convenient term. it sounds positive and upbeat and inclusive. diversity indicates more rather than less, additional options rather than fewer.“diversity” is also a euphemism. when critics from marginalized groups ask for more diversity, they are actually asking the media, employers, schools and society in general not to discriminate against them. when it

do men and women have different brains?


a few weeks ago, james damore lost his job at google after circulating a memo asserting, among other things, that there are major personality and behavioral differences, on average, between the sexes, based on biology. people often think that we can distinguish between biological and cultural causes of behavior and then debate which is more important. an emerging scientific consensus suggests that both sides of this debate are misguided. everything about our minds is both biological and cultural, the result of complex,...

roger ross williams, director of oscar-nominated documentary "life, animated," took a moment to talk about the importance of diversity while on the red carpet.

beyond the diversity report


advertisement there was once a time when everyone knew in their hearts that the tech industry was super white and male-dominated but didn’t have the stats to back it up.now that the likes of facebook, apple, twitter, google, amazon, netflix and, most recently, uber, have released their reports, the stats are out there. and what a lot of people thought about the industry’s lack of diversity turned out to be true. since the first diversity data came out in 2013, thanks to a freedom of information act request, followed by willing disclosures by many well-known tech companies, very little has changed.there is also still a handful of tech companies that have yet to release diversity reports, including lyft, snap, spotify, tesla, twilio, instacart, sprig and postmates. but given that barely anyt

kristy tillman is the head of communication design at slack. in our 20th episode, she talks about what it’s like building a team from scratch and how brand and communication design plays a role in an organization. she also explains why diversity is less about numbers and more about having the right perspectives present.starting from nothing is not an easy task, but it’s one tillman has done multiple times throughout her career. she says one of the keys to building a design team from the ground up is to start with generalist designers at first, before eventually bringing on more specialized talent.diversity might not be what you think it is. according to tillman, diversity is about understanding how to engage people with all different points of view. “diversity isn’t necessarily about filli
