Wanted to share this with the list - Maha Bali challenges some of our assumptions and biases when practicing and using terms like “inclusion” and “diversity”. Among other things I really like what she says about different approaches to critical thinking and particularly what she says about starting with empathy and deep listening.

Pushing The Edge with Greg Curran<http://directory.libsyn.com/shows/view/id/pushingtheedge>
