Offering notional verbal equality to women
Do not offer notional verbal equality to women merely because they add benausic value to your life. They have competitive equal talent value which needs to be recognised and acknowledged. D&I is an empty theory and a long drawn journey if it is to be wrestled out at every stage by assertiveness and legislations . D& I is a meaningful and valuable journey when it is influenced by acknowledgement of spiritual and real-time equality. We invest disproportionate energy to preach to the converted. Our investments to positively influence change in thinking of dominating men , is marginal. This is what voluntary agencies working in this space, seriously need to work on.
