Article Summary: 

The blog from the link you provided is a guest blog that discusses the use of the term "diverse" as a code word in the workplace. The article argues that the term has become overused and is often used to avoid discussing issues of race and ethnicity directly.

The blog explains how the use of the term "diverse" can be problematic because it is vague and can mask the true intentions of those using it. The article suggests that instead of using the term "diverse," employers should focus on specific initiatives and strategies that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

The blog discusses the importance of creating an inclusive workplace culture that values and respects differences. The article also suggests that employers should make a concerted effort to hire and promote individuals from underrepresented groups and provide them with the necessary resources and support to succeed.

The blog concludes by emphasizing the need for open and honest communication about diversity and inclusion in the workplace and for employers to take meaningful action to address these issues.
