Forbes – Leadership: (DI)SCUSS: Announcing Forbes’ New Diversity & Inclusion Facebook Group

Now more than ever, companies worldwide are adopting business strategies that promote equality. Despite this, underrepresented groups still face significant career hurdles and discrimination within the workplace. That’s why Forbes has launched its inaugural Facebook group: (DI)SCUSS.

 The community is a private, online collaboration hub where underrepresented groups and their allies can freely brainstorm, network and engage in lively conversations about issues that impact them. 

As a Forbes reporter covering all aspects of diversity and inclusion, I noticed a desperate need for a platform where people from marginalized communities could openly share their career wins and losses, learn how to advocate for themselves and seek advice on navigating spaces where they’ve historically been overlooked. 




 In speaking with various business leaders and C-suite executives, I also saw a need for two-way communication between leaders and their increasingly diverse employees. To quote a CEO I recently interviewed, “Many of us want to create a more diverse and inclusive environment, but we’re not sure where to start … And sometimes, we’re afraid of making a misstep.”

 (DI)SCUSS touches on pressing issues in  a closed group forum. Topics include matters related to ageism, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity, race, gender, sexism and misogyny, mental health, disabilities (both visible and invisible), the formerly incarcerated and veterans.
