Our role in promoting diversity
Diversity in employment is a key indicator of a society's progression and greater promoter of equality. While many in the diaspora complain about the lack of diversity at our work places, we also have a key role to play in changing this. Namely, once we get into these positions, proving that Kenyans/Africans/blacks are not just as good but due to the fight to get their, are better than many of their peers. It doesn't involve turning oneself into an uncle Tom or a coconut i.e. losing one's identity. Merely understanding that in a meritocratic system, delivering on your role is more than half the battle.
