I love this job!  A girl from southwest Georgia with an opportunity to travel the southeast and visit cities like New York and the DMV. It was my reality of the American Dream.

Sweet tea is a staple in southern cuisine. Any state above North Carolina serves unsweetened tea. I was in shock. Sweet tea is universal so I thought. Adding sugar to iced tea requires mixing those results in sugar settling at the bottom of the glass. Once the tea is consumed the sugar remains at the bottom. It reminds me of diversity and inclusion. Including sugar satisfies an immediate need. The original intent of the beverage is to be served excluding the sugar. Incorporating this ingredient is an additional element. Sugar dissolves better in high temperatures based on its unique properties. Although included it remains at the bottom of the glass because it never dissolves. In this analogy sweet tea and the modification of its ingredients is compared to organizational recruitment strategies. Hiring diverse talent is more than adding a headcount of someone that looks different from the majority of the workforce population of X company. 

Entry level, associates, middle management, and senior leadership roles all require a varied mix of education and experience to further career development.  Companies can task themselves with identifying transferable and general skills that are industry standard. What has been shown is that organizations train and develop employees to meet their specific strategic goals. There is a deficiency that leaves employees unable to identify objective skill sets that can be transferable to other opportunities.

Which one will you choose, sweet or unsweetened tea?
