Part of my struggle with this is reconciling:
Ignoring social views at work seems much, much harder for people from certain groups/communities. So does that suggestion on its own create inequality in the workplace? Because it pushes a greater emotional burden on some employees than others?
Can a company that pushes this suggestion rightly claim that it cares about inclusivity? Workplace wisdom from the 1970s just doesn't seem to apply anymore.
May be pertinent for you.
