    Leadership, Privelege and Diversity

    Hi all:

    I am still here in Prague at the International Leadership Association conference and today we had quite an exciting roundtable discussion about leadership, privilege and diversity.  We have always maintained that learning about one's own privilege was a key element of personal leadership as well as diversity and that in fact, personal leadership is a key element of diversity training!

    It appears that the confluence of leadership and diversity is a topic that has not received a lot of attention and yet what we are hearing at this conference is that what was heard during the presidential electoral process, was so blatantly racist that our attention must return (if it ever left) this topic.

    What are your thoughts on this matter?  Is there a place for the discussion of diversity and/or privilege when discussing leadership?
