Thanks to Boris Kievsky for inviting me on his podcast. Our discussion about diversity and ethics yielded practical insights to help communicate more clearly to strengthen our personal and professional relationships. Here are a few excerpts.
"Labels are inevitable. We often call those stereotypes. it takes a lot of time and effort to really get to know people, so our minds looking for shortcuts. And that’s fine. As long as we don’t stop there."
"If we want to have intellectual integrity, we have to look beneath those labels, to know when to set the labels aside, and actually get to know people for who they are."
"If you’re just talking to the people who are doing what you’re doing, you’re going to get locked into certain preconceptions and certain modes of thinking."
"The function of ethics is trust. It's a natural progression. You trust someone that you believe has integrity. You trust someone that you believe has your best interest at heart, and everyone’s best interests at heart."
