Reimagining Work by Uncovering Talent

Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at NYU  School of Law and Christie Smith, Managing Principal of the Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion will be presenting findings from their recent whitepaper: Uncovering Talent: A New Model for Inclusion. The paper explores the concept of “covering,” a process through individuals downplay their differences relative to mainstream perceptions. Yoshino and Smith examine covering behaviors across four dimensions: appearance, affiliation, advocacy and association.  Their findings indicate that all populations – not just the historically underrepresented groups – cover at work and that such behaviors negatively impact one’s sense of self and diminishes employees’ commitment to their organizations.
