6. DIVERSITY TIP OF THE WEEK: Re-thinking our "Diversity" Approach

Event Type(s): Other,Diversity

Dr. Paul Gorski, a diversity expert and former UMD staff member, describes three ways of addressing diversity. In the Deficit Approach, we help those who we decide are "deficient" or "inadequate" by, for example, focusing on "fixing" them. In the Grit Approach, we foster strengths by, for example, creating the conditions for those who have been sidelined to articulate their needs and wants and to be fully heard. In the Structural Approach, we widen the lens and consider how to change and transform the organization itself, e.g., our departments, units, or the university. With this approach, we acknowledge that changing the institution, and not simply changing individuals, is the ultimate key to success. Deficit approaches maintain systems of inequality. Grit strategies can be very helpful, but Structural approaches yield enduring results. What's your approach? What's your department's approach? What different approaches might we consider?
