Is your brain lying to you?

A number of people have asked me why diversity matters in our media or on panel discussions or in top leadership.

I mean, does it really matter what we see when we crash on the couch after a long day? And at a conference or in top leadership, isn’t selecting the very best the most important thing?

The problem is how our brains work. You see, our brain has to handle a lot of information coming in, so in order to manage it, our brain takes the liberty of looking for patterns and filtering for us what it sees as the most important bits. Like autopilot, our brains take shortcuts.
