  • Understand that in complex times we can tend to revert to “old/comfortable” thinking, but this is prime time to embrace diversity
  • Understand that current workplace changes may disadvantage women and minority groups, but there are options
  • Be comfortable having the discussions that can help uncover issues and work towards positive outcomes
  • Explore positives from the current situation. What do we want to keep?
