The diversity and inclusion revolution: Eight powerful truths

Diversity of thinking is powerful for three reasons. First, it helps create a stronger and broader narrative about the case for diversity, one in which everyone feels relevant and part of a shared goal. Second, it more accurately reflects people’s intersectional complexity instead of focusing on only one specific aspect of social or demographic identity.19 Third, a focus on cognitive diversity recognizes that demographic equality—rather than being its own end—is useful as a visible indicator of progression toward diversity of thinking. 

Interesting comment about how increasing diversity leads to cognitive reactions, not something I’ve seen in other findings. Suggests that when group diversity reflects actual demographics, everyone benefits.
