How about this:
1. Friendship is the most powerful “diversity strategy” there is.
There is nothing more important than creating meaningful and organic relationships with people across the various borders that have historically divided us. It is through these real relationships–whole, vulnerable, reciprocal–that we really learn about our own blind spots and the beauty of others’ perspectives.
8. It’s not about making policies for people, but making policies with people.
People at the decision-making table need to reflect the diversity that you want your policies to reflect. Asking, “How will this affect marginalized people?” is another worthwhile, but inadequate question. Better yet, let marginalized people help architect the policy in the first place.
The other seven points are worth reading too. Courtney was writing on the Center for Courage and Renewal website. I like the sound of them.
