Why Representation Matters: diversity in networks and the RSA Fellowship

Why Representation Matters: diversity in networks and the RSA Fellowship

"Under-represented minority groups have never had the same access to resources and social capital as dominant groups. We’re not at the same dinner parties, we don’t have the same “family and friends” allowances, we don’t always fit smoothly into conversations and don’t always feel like we belong. Consequently, we don’t always have the same easy access to brilliant new ideas, we aren’t in conference rooms where decisions get made, and we don’t always hear about opportunities for support and collaboration."
