    To varying degrees, we all tend to choose what is most familiar and comfortable. This is an affinity bias. Even those who harbor no prejudice against a person or group often seek out what is familiar and comfortable. Doing so, however, often leaves those with valuable experience, perspective, and knowledge on the sideline. Leaders who are aware of affinity bias make efforts to engage others with diverse backgrounds, not because it is "the right thing to do," but because it is "the smart thing to do." This is called inclusiveness. Diversity is counting people. Inclusiveness is enabling people to count. R.Carparelli, American Judicature Society
