WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND

It’s popular these days to insist our institutions of academia, big business and government have executives in charge of “diversity, equity and inclusion.” These execs have fancy offices and big budgets and lead efforts that really only require common sense. I’d propose we simplify this process and simply seek the “Golden Rule” to be common practice. It’s timeless advice: “Do onto others as you would have them do onto you.” This doesn’t require the cottage industry or reams of paper dedicated to handbooks and endless meetings. “Hey, people, treat everyone the same as you’d like to be treated.” Got it? Get it! Good! Enforce that and the laws already in place and we’re good. We’ve been taught this since Kindergarten. Let’s bring it back with full force.
