We’re Making the Wrong Case for Diversity in Silicon Valley
This article from Harvard Business Review by Todd L. Pittinsky posits that traditional diversity arguments have not convinced Silicon Valley about diversity's value because Silicon Valley is among the most innovative in technology while remaining the least diverse.
"Moreover, there are evidential challenges to the business case makers. Much of the research evidence purporting to show that diversity leads to innovation and to profits is correlational. That is, it shows that diversity and innovation are more likely to occur together but leaves open the question of which causes which — or whether both are caused by something else."
