10 Essential Diversity and Inclusion Blogs

10 Essential Diversity and Inclusion Blogs

Diversity is a topic that I have at heart, as some of you might have noticed. All the variations on the topic: inclusion, belonging, equality and so on, are strongly linked to an important business case. Unfortunately, finding resources that are really specific and “new” on this issue is not easy to be found. Plus, the topic, even if evolving, still is crystallised on two positions: a US-based one (often associated to positive discrimination), and one based on a multifaceted point of view that is more present in Europe and Asia.

In any case, after my listings of Essential Blog resources on Organisation Design, HR General, Leadership, and Talent Acquisition, here the list of blogs that I recommend and that focus on Diversity and Inclusion. As usual, the order of the list is completely random.

June has been named “Pride Month” since a couple of years, and I’ve decided to use this occasion to examine what’s up with LGBTQ+ rights on the workplace. In a series of posts, I will try to explain my view and personal experience trying to see it from the different angles that I use in my blog.

  1. Personal: Myself, Out at Work.
  2. People: The value of Diversity for LGBT+ people
  3. Organisation: Designing for Belonging, not just Inclusion
  4. Experience: Designing Inclusive Employee Experiences
  5. Inspiration: 10 Essential Diversity and Inclusion Blogs (this post).

I will also publish two book reviews on topics that are connected with Inclusion and Diversity. I’ve written more on the topic in the past. Two good places where to start are: The Business Case for Diversity and Belonging and From Diversity and Inclusion to Belonging.
