Cultures of inclusion: Vivacious corporate culture without discrimination
We have 3 kegs of beer in our Boston office.
We eat on a ping pong table in Delhi.
Portland has bike racks
Sydney has a pet wombat (kidding).
As corporate loosens up and blurs the lines between work and play, who are we leaving behind? Having a drink at your desk helps some people stay late, but for recovering alcoholics, it may be the trigger to send them to skid row. For a young woman, it could make 7pm at office a dingy bar at 2am.
Alcohol is just one example, but particularly in a country like India with such diverse cultural backgrounds and social mores how do have an opinionated, fun culture without alienating those who may not fit into it 110%?
