Who doesn’t want to be smarter? The key to being the smartest person in the room is to surround yourself with people who are socially different and by looking through different lenses. Diversity of all kinds provides the building blocks for inclusive intelligence – which is the antidote to polarization, alternative facts, and fake news. Kathleen Nalty has spent her entire career fighting for social justice, civil rights, diversity, and inclusion. Her passion was ignited by a transformative experience when she was 5-years-old, living in the segregated South during the Civil Rights movement. After obtaining a law degree, Kathleen worked as a federal civil rights prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice on cases involving hate crimes, police brutality, and slavery. She also founded the Center for Legal Inclusiveness and led the nonprofit’s work in diversity and inclusion in the legal industry. Kathleen is a nationally recognized speaker and consultant on diversity and inclusion as well as a published author of a book on the topic entitled Going All-In on Diversity and Inclusion: The Law Firm Leader’s Playbook. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
