Why Diverse Teams are Smarter, but Don't Feel That Way
"I have admission to make guilty confession. Is that quite often. I use these fridays as an opportunity to actually talk to people. I really wanna talk to being dined to catch up with the evaluation so finally get to have an hour with you. You're one of the brightest smartest people in this whole space and just doing such interesting web. So i'm excited to be here. Get to catch up with you. And i know if i'm excited. People are to maiava. Confession is that. I often schedule these topics as things. I really want to understand better. And i really want to understand the mechanics of why teams smart but don't feel that way Really curious to go a few clicks deeper than we already have got into it. So i'm excited about position. Basically got a heads around this question. Why is it that diverse teams a smarter in what way and we publish this first piece. It's become kind of a big piece in not just our work but widely shared across the end. What we wanted to do today was kinda. Go a few clicks into this question. Revisit this question because it's really topical and really understand this so anyway let's dig in bowery. Let's hit from you. I will. I mean what are the ways that diverse teams are smarter. Maybe you kickoff. Employees can add some in what ways the diverse teams actually smarter. So first of all thank you. There's been so much work that has happened in the past ten years. I love being part of the community. Because you're the best in the world taking mr geeky signs that are laboratories then actually making it usable also. Thank you for continuing. Does about your lead. Because i'm just assuming everyone knows you. And i'm going to tell bias already. Well i am a a psychologist by training and another way to think about. It also comes under the rubric of a behavioral scientists and my laboratory which is literally in the basement without windows takes people from all over the united states. all of the world that are unsuspecting. Just wanna be part of research and we try to understand to. My specialty is diversity equity inclusion anti racism so i have conducted studies on the impact of diversity on performance. What does performance mean. What does diversity actually wilk lake. We've done research on some of the white logical underpinnings of bias. Johnson mark on collective intelligence both in the world of education and also organizations but a lot of it really comes from starting off the company's zang. What are the problems that organizations trying to solve going to the laboratory look at tight causality and trying to understand the mechanisms and then trying to go back into the world and share so it's busy times incredible times this past year but also really important. Great that's really helpful. I've got an image of you in the basement with no light and judd breaking unsuspecting executives into telling you what they really think that's great. Keep up the good cook Going to end something that from my perspective is a little bit different. Having done diversity research way back when including the first study that showed a connection between gender diversity and financial performance. But my confession is. I've used so much of this work long. Before came to the organization. It headed diversity at few organizations like mckinsey and micron technology and it might trump particularly these articles that were talking about today. Were what really swayed a leadership team who had no experience with a diversity effort before that this was incredibly important thing to do of course teaser filled with engineers but they were really compelled by putting a lot of energy into the dna efforts in part because of what they learned from this research. So thank you didn't break the yeah. Remissed interviewed introducing both before me about such an experience by us of assuming you been around for awhile but yet pull. It comes to us as chief diversity officer many esteemed organizations before working with us and applying the work until late in the whistle. Grateful to have you with Yes let's question with all that background. In what ways diverse teams smart maybe battery. Do you wanna start on that. Yeah well i think there's a couple of ways the first way. Is that diverse team. People talk about this idea. That diverse teams breed innovative thinking. And the reason why that happens is because of cognitive elaboration. What that means is that people are thinking with a greater depth of thoughts. They are thinking about counterfactual. We should be thinking about this in a different way. They are slowing down. So they're sort of able to sort of absorb information from others. They're engaged in greater perspective taking where they have to sort of sink about a problem for multiple people's perspectives. So there's a lot of benefits. I think at this sort of cognitive level when you think about what makes innovation happen but the catalyst is diversity and then there's also these other benefits where people feel included in the sense that all of us have something about ourselves. That's a little bit different. Quirky potentially marginalized historically discriminated against. And then when you see a group of individuals around you that's a little bit different. It's an fosters. The sense of inclusion like my perspective on my identity has something to so there. Are those kind of emotional affective and then there's also the cognitive benefits into this is really kind of at the small what we call the micro level when you're looking at teams and

At the Bowery mission in time for their Thanksgiving Day season crush in which they will have tens of thousands of people begin to come to their kitchen every single week seeking help and seeking Helping in places in times where they have nowhere else to go. And I just I want I want to break this down because it's so simple Friend. A dollar 59 provides a meal for someone That wanders through the doorway at the Bowery. Ah, and people don't just go to the Bowery because it's fun. In fact, usually if somebody He is so desperate that they're walking through the red door, the historic red door at the Bowery mission. It's because they're pretty much out of choices. They They have nowhere else to go. They have lost any hope of having any rials sense of control over their own choices in life because they are without options. And at the end of the day, this is one of those Reality's friends. And I don't know I would encourage everyone at some point to volunteer a shift at the Bowery Go down and help him serve food or or do something that that you see there, at least the minimum take a tour of the place. Because you know that while people are coming there at the very end of their rope that it is a place that exudes great hope for what those people can be when they leave. It's one of the reasons why every October for the last 10 years or so we have got about this opportunity to stock their pantry. They need at minimum seven through 10,000 meals for Thanksgiving Day in weekend. Just that weekend alone will be the most burdened time that they will have in their entire calendar year. And it is on that day, and it is during that time when they have more need and they come across more people's path, and then they have it any other time. And so these dollars 59 Thanksgiving day dinners. That's how much it costs them to put the dinner together. And if you haven't seen it, by the way, I would recommend that you go over to w m dot com and look at the Bowery Missions Picture. Because they're on the picture. You will see the plate of food that they receive its a big serving of turkey. It's mashed potatoes. It's green beans. It's yams. It's pumpkin pie. It's cranberry sauce. It's all the stuff that That you think about when you think about having your kind of traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner. Maybe your family has slightly different dishes, Whatever. But this is this is the historic kind of traditional way of going about it. They don't serve it on paper plates with plastic forks. That's wasteful for one thing. They used. They used the good plates and they used the sterling flatware and they've got They've got the stuff that that makes the people feel special. The linen tablecloths. And when they come in, they receive a message of hope and encouragement. From the chapel That's running 24 hours a day that day. They they receive this this meal that is satisfying physically, but also during it. They interact with Valerie Mission personnel and They get to tell their story and they get to be known a little bit. And I don't know if you've ever been really lonely, truly lonely, truly isolated. But to even have someone's attention for a few minutes. Can mean the world. And in this particular situation often times that plate of food and Thanksgiving Day dinner translates into a hot shower and a residency program and skill set development and lives that are completely turned around. Since that's what you make happen when you call And we have 1300 of those meals that they need for their pantry toe had to for the pantry to be stocked at a dollar 59 each if he just rounded up to a dollar 60 and you do 100 meals.

You know, wheat paste posters, Um, stencil art, graffiti art, all talking about their feelings and their connection to the black lives movement. We don't Now we love artist that you show up in paint right for this week. We think it's We think it's a It's a very good thing. However, as charity we feel that there's a moral ethical gap between I was participating, actively working with building owners of property business owners painting over wooden boards and things covering windows. There's a there's a There's a belief within the the arts community that Sometimes you kind of need to show we can't make everything pretty. So sometimes you kind of need to show how things are, and people need to better understand why they are that way. But painters paint created people create. I'm doing that by walking just just simply going to like, Let's say between Broadway so if everybody's listening here if you go to Broadway and House Who lets a rooster and housing so that would be your East West perimeter and then between house did in Canal If you were to simply just go up and down, just kind of snake up and down the streets down Green Street. Down, you know, with the street. You're going to be really a lot of raw energy and a lot of a lot of emotion and feeling on these boards. And that's one of the reasons why you should see it and also it's ephemeral, so it will be gone. I mean, businesses will open up and that's a big concern. You know, our artists put their heart and soul on that plywood. And what happens to that buy would afterwards you know, there's already talk of galleries trying to screw things up and collectors trying to just take things down overnight. And, um So if you're going to if you want to see, you know really what the heart and soul is Now's the time to, uh to definitely take a walk so and also, you know, get a glass of wine or a cup of coffee. Help out a little bit, sir, has ever opened back up. If you're just tuning in Matt Katz, filling in for Alison Stewart on all of it. We're speaking with Wayne Rada, executive director and curator of Little Italy, Street art and their least also notice Lisa and their projects, Self guided street. Our tour. Okay, So when you you Ah, there's I'm told there's some Artwork that is LGBT related on Get Rainbow harmony. Is that right? At the mural? Yes, the the World Pride mural, which is by buff Monster. I believe they're talking about how you talk to the ice cream characters. I believe Yes. Yes. So we were. The charity would have the great honor last year of being hired by heritage of Pride, which is, you know all things. New York City pride. And working with with the New York City itself for the Stone Wall, 50 celebration as well as the 20th anniversary of all pride. Particularly special as well. Since this is the first that was last year was the first year we've ever hosted. Well, pride here in the U. S. Um it's the 50th anniversary Stonewall. So you better do something big and what we've done is if you were to continue down Barbary and you get to Broome Street after you're done with Friedman, you could either you are or we'll take another quick little left on Bowery and you'll see at the corner of Christy and Bowery. A beautiful mural facing the park by an artist named Buff Monster who was featured in Exit through the gift shop, a documentary from about a decade ago. If anybody wants to really understand street art and understand these artists, uh, exit through the gift shop is just a great place to start. His characters are Ice cream cones, and they're there with a pride seem in color behind it. I wanted to create something. And when talking to bus where We're going to celebrate pride and people will instantly know this is a private mural to celebrate Stonewall, but then afterwards You know when the celebrations pass in time time passes. It's nice that there's something there just for the community faces a park, so it's very colorful and very mural that makes you smile. It's beautiful just to sit in the park and look at it. Kids, families, all walks of life that that use our public parks as whatever it is, even if they're just there to kill some time, um, very grateful for it. And we can tell when people really love mural because the community takes care of him. You know, you don't see a lot of vandalism, bottom. Even the graffiti artist respect them and people clean them and care for them. So that was that's art. That was pretty much our crown jewels for for Stonewall 50 last year in 25 Pride 2019 and that's definitely a great one to look at. And it's ethically size. It's 40 feet tall, 90 feet. Why It was a labor of love, to say the least, to just outline it just to get the mural ready to paint. It took two days to eight hour days just to put it onto the profit. So Just a practice. You have just a profit, and then another week containing the next mural I want to ask about. It is kind of random. It's a mural of ah supermodel on mulberry and broom called Big City of Dreams. Yeah, but it's more than that. It's more than just the image of a supermodel right? It's well, so the idea was is that there are times where where everybody. People thinks corporations are evil, and there's always between art and commerce dissolved that struggle. We make it really easy where we just put our cards on the table at the course things everything's always for the good of the community. And for the people that visited and working with you. She hobby I d'd on but the artist Tristan Eaton. Prison is very ah, very again. Another socially conscious, very aware artist, and he knew that listen, it's on the side of a fancy bar called Gold Gold Bar. You know you never DiCaprio and all your celebrities.

"I wound up in hospital and from there the Bowery mission hook me in when everything else around me. What's falling apart completely falling apart? So the Bowery mission made it possible for me to rebuild my life. Well, one of the things that we talk about with the boundaries that they have a wide array of ministries in in your talking about the women's center specifically, but give us a little more detail about what was going on in your life. You had started your own business. But you were a single mom of of one one child you said, well, originally, I I was never married, but we were together. So I started my business and had a young child would live together as a family, and then slowly everything started fall apart. So I became a single mother and became a struggling business owner, then came a struggling single mother until slowly like. Things started to fall apart. Like being my daughter was seen my business left, and then my sanity less and that the the weight of all of that drove you to hospitalization. What what were you originally hospitalized for? I take my own life. I was that press and could not manage it anymore. So I also suffer from alcoholism, and it it increases the depression. So while under the influence of alcohol, I just suffered from suicidal idealization. I just thought ok does drink more. You'll have the courage to do it. And I did it. I tried to take my life and wound up in the emergency room. So that's kind of where my my journey Puerto with the Bowery mission. I took my life like what right. Did I have to my life? Right. What was they holding onto? And why why are they holding onto it? So hard. And I knew that all the last thing I had to do by white save, and I was baptized, and I was going to church the last thing I had to do with let go and give my life to God. While at the hospital, I'd already taking my life and the next step was to give it over to God to give everything to God. Give them a business. My daughter my relationship and give them myself.

They offered many services like resume rebuilding all sorts of classes. Almost like divinity school like like bible classes, and a lot of research into the root causes of our problem. So it wasn't just we're gonna help you with alcoholism are diction, and you know, the series of issues women walk in there with that they face. It wasn't dealing with issues itself is dealing with the root causes of issues. Digging deep into the soul into memory into everything that has happened to us since we were young women, and we have carried inside. And we write about it. We talk about it. We cried about it. We prayed about it. And then we were able to move onto the next issue and all over again deal with it. So it was a lot of supportive emotional, scripture based healing. And then there was the other half of the day would be computer center and business center, and Ben the evening after dinner. Could be mentors coming in. And and be on with each of us individually on our own issues. So for some creating a resume for others updating it and for others. Editing it and improving the content of it. So we were we were served at all levels for all women at every level. Let's serve friends. It really does. What you're hearing in katie's voice, her strong voice because she's probably telling you what what God did in her life through.

"Tried to do in friends. It's something that we consider to be very important around these parts. And it's one of the reasons why we partner with such great organizations like the Bowery mission each year to try to bring hope to people's lives. Hope has a you know, it has such a review reviving affect on the person. And if you go to the Bowery missions website, you will see story after story that they have put into video form that kind of tell the story of some of the people that have come through the program. But there there's one fellow future there by the name of Paul. He's sixteen years old spent most of his life on the streets. His father was a drug addict had never been around in his neighborhood. A whole bunch of stuff happens like drugs and sex in gangs. In fact, many of his friends had gotten into those things. He said, my mom raised me. Right. But she couldn't protect me from everything. So when my mom heard about the Bowery missions Motte lawn camp a Christian summer camp for kids. She decided I was going. I was nine at the time. And I loved all the things to do. I enjoy camps so much win every summer. I turned thirteen that was a hard year for me. I struggled a lot with a lot of stuff with my mom that she couldn't help me with. I was really anxious and shy had a hard time opening up to people. But that camp got me a mentor that mentor got me into tutoring. All kinds of help came my way, and I'm really grateful to the Bowery mission and Maat long camp. Because now, I've I've got a real future. He wants to study child psychology wants to help college. When he's with college wants to help work with kids and do that for the rest of his life when he grows up, and as James Winans is with James that's just a a lot of people don't understand the face of homelessness in many respects. Now doesn't resemble anything that we think of in the kind of prejudicial kind of stereotypical fashion. It is it is increasingly children. It is increasingly women that are in need of these helps. And that's why Bowery has put such a focus on expanding those arenas in recent years. That's right one out of every one hundred and twenty eight New Yorkers experiencing homelessness today, and the majority of the folks experiencing almost women and children, and we really intervene and children's lives as much as we seek to. Reliable adults. We we don't want children growing up in New York today to end up in a situation where they're become almost Bowery mission as adults, and so we're turning to meet them in your life as well. As getting a second chance to women who somewhere along the way things the nocco has their plants things tobacco assay hopes. I'm so we want to restore that hope. So streams come alongside people. And and enjoy the goals that they have for their lives. Well, and it's it's really the work of the gospel since it is the gospel that makes all things and all people knew when you are giving people a new lease on life in particularly when it is based on faith in Jesus Christ. There is so much that naturally is set up in kind of the spiritual universe for that, heart soul and mind to begin to be what I said earlier revived in many respects. I recently heard the story of Mike and Mike is an older gentleman is a hard worker is provided for so much of his life. But I'll call really games control over license. So you started taking all the money from work and putting it right into his addiction, and eventually was kicked out of his home forced to live on the three and it came to the Bowery mission, and what he's experienced at the Bowery mission, that's food and shelter and showers and and a life. Recovery program. But what he says about Barry mission is high believe in God, more and more every day. Because he's receiving your tangible expressions as love for his life. Yeah. That's just bolstered his belief in God who loves him in there. A guy who has a place for him. Well, and that's what I want you to consider because the plate of food in its inextricably linked to this. The plate of food opens a relationship at opens a person's heart like what James just described where he he's he's in contact now with the Bowery staff and others that are in the program, and he sees for himself how God is working in their lives. And James, I've got a I've got to think that's contagious like they want that hope that they see being modeled around them. And in batteries work. They come into close proximity with it. Right. We celebrate us people graduate from the program much like you go and celebrate your child or your grandchild. Graduation from college. We celebrate people graduate from our residential program. Those who have not yet completed the program or even started the program have the opportunity to see that and see that success. I hope this can be a part of their lives as well. Friends. We need you to to pick up the phone and make a call eight hundred eight to nine nine three five one eight hundred eight eight to nine nine three five your gift of one hundred and sixty dollars helps supply one hundred meals for the need that the Bowery will have on Thanksgiving Day. We're trying to stock.

"All sorts, and we looked to see their lives transformed to hope joy lasting productivity, and especially you tunnel. Life is the power of Jesus Christ. Well, talk about those last couple of things specifically transform to hope lasting productivity and eternal life, the lasting productivity. I think is the part that a lot of people wonder if if I give a meal to the Bowery mission. How does that turn someone who is homeless, and we we oftentimes have very prejudiced views about what we think homeless people are why they are what caused them to be. But the lasting productivity to me seems to be really redeeming quality of the program about Bowery mission. Why why is there? This emphasis, and how do you create that lasting productivity in the life of the person that you're ministering to? You know, we like we like to say that I sometimes it just begins with a meal, and it literally is bad at the beginning of a relationship when we meet people for the first time coming in off the street. They really are only able oftentimes to advocate for themselves at the level of what they feel they're hungry right now. And but that meeting that particular need to give the conversation that then moves to the next conversation, the next conversation, and in the midst of that, we're introducing them to the reality of a hope that's bigger than their current circumstance. We introducing the Jesus Christ. But we also introduce them to the real possibility in this world to get a job because they look their skills here. There's gifting we'll begin to talk about what would they used to dream about when they dreamed, and we talk about the exciting things again trying to walk out a path on how they can get to that place. Some come in with skills. Some some literally they haven't they've had something they've fallen into a difficult. We can help them with a particular issue, but some never had the skills, and so we're able to work with them develop confidence in themselves built some esteem. Learn how to work and then put them in a position where they begin to develop specific skills that align with their gifting and suddenly they're entering the very column. The God had on their life. It changes everything, and it starts with a male friend, if you're listening, and you say, we'll what difference does that Thanksgiving Day dinner make well, they've just described it for you. It is the beginning of a process a process that has proven extremely successful. I might add. There is an incredible impact that the Bowery mission has with the people that seek their services as opposed to state run organizations and other things that are that are put out there. And we are so grateful that they do what they do when you understand in. This is a really disheartening statistics. Dave Jones that nearly one in three.

Brett Cavanaugh for US supreme court may have a major hurdle to overcome correspondent, Linda, Linda Kenyon has the story. The Senate Judiciary committee is expected to vote on Thursday, whether to confirm the nominee the recommendation will then be sent to the full Senate for consideration. That's all goes well for the nominee, but as of last Thursday things were anything, but well for Brad Kavanagh, the committee stopped Democrats Senator Dianne Feinstein announced she had released a letter to the FBI investigation a letter in which a woman alleged Cavanaugh attempted to rape her when both she and cavenaugh were in high school Republican Thom Tillis was asked CBS's face the nation. If he thinks judge Brad Kavanagh will still be confirmed. I do think that will move forward to report them out of committee and confirmed before October democrat Doug Jones said the same thing when he spoke to CNN state of the union. I think you're gonna see this nomination move forward. There's really not much that can be done unless this person comes forward. And that person did come forward. Shortly after Jones made that statement Christine blazey Ford is a professor at Palo Alto university. She broke her silence in an interview published in the Washington Post judge Cavanaugh categorically and unequivocally denied the allegation on Friday. Meanwhile, Republican Joe Kennedy says the late release of the allegation against judge cavenaugh smacks of desperation, most Americans are looking at this most mainstream stream Americans, and they're thinking that congress has hit rock bottom and started to date speaking on Fox News.
