"Diversity can’t be controlled. It simply emerges. Most diversity and inclusion programs start with a numerical goal or target, like Intel’s goal of “full representation by 2020.” On the surface, it seems logical to set goals that can be measured by role, hiring rates, exit rates, promotion rates, pay, etc. The challenge, however, is that companies are complex ecosystems, where individuals, each with free will, make hundreds of decisions, every second, every day. Each organization has unique needs. Simulation is the best route to finding the right recipe for D&I. There is a quantifiable link between diversity and performance. The surprising thing about diversity in tech is the lack of technology solutions to help address these complex problems. Diversity in tech needs diversity tech." - John Belizaire.
