How Do We Avoid “Diversity” Becoming a Business Thing?

  1. Diversity as impacts the individual (the self) in order to gather a wide range of experience into one single mind.
  2. Diversity as impacts business effectiveness, ie heterogeneity either produces more sustainable or effective ways of producing business value, purely through less groupthink, or it helps a business to link into wider external needs, such as a larger market.
  3. Diversity as impacts our democratic sustainability as a society, and hence our more general sustainability as a species. Without diversity and integration, the risk is not that we become ineffective like a business, but that we become hostile and warmongering.
