    The argument about baby boomers retiring is bogus. The youngest boomers were born in 1964, meaning they will only be 54 this year, 12 years short of retirement. A good percentage are years from retirement, and polls, in other words actual facts, show that the majority will want, or need, to work at least part time even after retirement. Automation is also a factor, it”s replacing a lot of low skilled jobs now. The figure of immigrants producing 4.6 million jobs by 2040 is quite small. Considering the fact that we will probably add 60 million in population by then, given present rates of immigration, it hardly seems worth the cost. And why do we need to worry NOW about our labor needs 22 years in the future? Is there going to be some shortage of people willing to come here in the future? Absurd. As pointed out, holding out total GDP of a country as some kind of success story is meaningless. India, as open border libertarians love to point out, has a big growth in total GDP every year, but it”s due to out of control population growth. They passed one billion in population 20 years ago and have added 300 million since. How could anyone consider THAT some kind of desirable progress. The vast majority of the population lives in abject poverty in a polluted landscape. No thanks.

    So in today’s Build episode, we’re going to talk about the issues specific to tech and provide you with some strategies for navigating those tricky conversations with your teammates and your peers. We’ll also dive into what isn’t working and why. If you’re curious about starting a diversity and inclusion initiative at your company or participating in another organization, then keep an eye out for the next episode where we’ll do a deeper dive into a number of best practices. To help us out I’ve invited Melinda Epler and Wayne Sutton, who are the founders of Change Catalyst and Tech Inclusion. As you watch this episode, you’ll learn the following: Why we may shy away from talking about diversity and inclusion How shaming people and companies doesn’t help the cause Why awareness isn’t enough — how to shift to being more process oriented Why it’s hard to take action individually and how to get support How to know if diversity and inclusion are worth it   For all of you out there in the audience, let us know in the comments below this video if your organization has put in place any diversity and inclusion initiatives.
