White men may feel they're being relegated to the back seat but they really are still in the driver's seat - but thankfully driver-less cars are coming.
The driver-less car may just be a metaphor for reaching equality but I'll take it!
When privilege is taken for granted, a call for equity can feel oppressive. SO, what could the leadership tip be here?
This week's Quick Tip: focus on something bigger than you are - a purpose, a goal, a mission and invite people to challenge your comfort zone and your privilege and then humbly seek to learn and grow.
Next week's SQT (Spring Quick Tip); the Hint: A bias I've carried with me my entire life. I'm learning how to harness it to help me.

What am I doing these days?
Whether it's about systems or leadership skills, my mission is to help senior leaders make their workplace more productive, inclusive and innovative.
My Passion Initiative: to eradicate violence against women and girls in Canada. I started Bohm-style conversations at Rotman (the #RRTs) in late 2016 to engage men in conversations on gender.
The regular public #RRTs concluded last month but it's not over. Learn more about what we've been doing HERE. AND join our mailing list HERE and you will receive updates on our organizational RTs and details about future public engagements.
When Google fired James Damore, they may have missed a great opportunity to have a constructive and meaningful conversation. Maybe if we start listening to each other we will find more common ground and work through the conflicts that are tearing us apart.
In the meantime, if you know a workplace that is ready and courageous enough to invite their people to engage in meaningful conversations, introduce us.
