4 GRP2018 How many times have you walked into a room – be it for a lecture, a function, a restaurant or even an interview – and your immediate thought is ‘I don’t be- long here’. What makes you decide, in that spilt second, whether you feel included and want to stay in the room or whether you feel uncomfortable and want to leave. Is it perhaps because of your language, your gender, your skin colour or your religion – or perhaps none of these? We know that our childhood and past experiences deter- mine and shape our beliefs, associations and categorisa- tions – for example we grow up expecting a male to provide for a family financially while the mother stays at home to look after the children. Neurological- ly these unconscious biological reactions kick in a full 250 milli- seconds before conscious thought begins. As we grow up, these categorisations entrench themselves and shape and de- termine how we view people. My question to you as a Wits student is – how conscious are you of your own categorisations or stereotypes of people and what are you doing to break down barriers to ensure that you are part of shaping an in- clusive culture on campus? The Bill of Rights (Chapter 2) in The South African Constitu- tion enshrines the rights of all people. Besides this, there is a strong moral imperative to treat all people equally but entrench- ing ‘inclusivity’ as an everyday occurrence - the practice of in- cluding other people who might otherwise feel excluded or marginalised - is up to you and I. We need to make conscious decisions and be proactive in making people feel included. We cannot complain that our campus, our country is racist or sexist if we are not part of the change we want to see.
As individuals we need to take a candid look at ourselves – our campus may be diverse but how inclusive are we making it? Do we value individuals’ unique identities and recognise them as part of our world or do we merely tolerate differentness. Choosing to embrace the uniqueness of people around us and being inclusive can prepare us for the world of work which, according to recent research, is showing that a diverse workforce where people feel included is having a strong impact on companies’ pro- ductivity and ultimately has a correlation to the organisations’ profit margins.
This may be because the very act of encouraging diverse thought encourages innova- tion; it means we have to think differently and in so doing it challenges mediocrity. A recent American Sociological Asso- ciation Study found that for every 1% increase in the rates of gender and cultural diversity within an organisation, there is a 3% and 9% increase in sales respectively. Adapting this outlook may im- prove your employability in the future but for now I would value your ideas on how to develop a mindset of inclusion that we can use in our University – we need students and staff to work together on making our envi- ronment more inclusive. I look forward to your mail which you can send to registrar@wits. ac.za Carol Crosley Registrar (WITS University) 4 GRP2018 FOREWORD
5 GRP2018 INCLUSIVITY IN THE WORKPLACE AS WELL AS THE ACADEMIC INSTITUTION “There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see the person as more.” Disability in the workplace, as well as in society itself, is a topic surrounded by stigma, appre- hension and countless questions. Progression believes that, through the sharing of information around disability, these stigmas and fears can be replaced with acceptance and inclusiveness where disability is seen as part of normal hu- man experience. Many organisations are striving towards diversifying their workforce and including people with disabilities among their staff. As a starting point, one can use the correct ter- minology, for example, addressing someone as a person with a disability rather than a disabled person.
Awareness/Education: Creating awareness around disability is the first step in ensuring your work environment is an inclusive and accepting one, where people with disabilities feel com- fortable in disclosing their disability and will be equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to be successful and productive. Changing one’s mind-set is of utmost importance and can be done by participating and actively celebrating health awareness days throughout the year. Reasonable Accommodation: The concept of reasonable accommodation, as defined in the Employment Equity Act, is designed to provide a fair, non judgemental, accessi- ble mechanism to explore the possibilities which exist within a business, with the view on minimising the barriers and focus on the skills and value of individuals. How? Emphasis needs to be placed on the so- cial model of disabil- ity, which observes the structures and systems of society as barriers for people with disabilities rather than the condition itself. Only allowing, or budget- ing, for the physical or structural changes when implementing reasonable accommodation can be counterproductive in the long term if it is not supported by inclusive and accessible attitudes and culture. Not all disabilities are physical, nor display visible or obvious symptoms, there are also different types of mental disabilities. Ongoing support is critical in the successful management of invisible disabilities. In addition, supportive poli- cies within the organisation can assist in ensuring that best practice is followed at all times. Although there are a number of tools available to reason- ably accommodate a person with a disability, the process does not always have to be an expensive one. If we want to encourage inclusive and ac- cessible workplaces, reasonable accommodation needs to be considered or explored at some point in the employment cycle.
Accessibility: toilets, parking, elevators, work- spaces etc. In the case where an organisation is not the owner of the building they occupy, con- versations need to take place with landlords to implement the necessary measures to improve accessibility. Assistive Devices: Various assistive devices are available for the different types of disabilities. Most universities, including Wits, use assistive devices in order to best assist their students as well as keeping current with the latest technolo- gies. An example would be using an electronic form of Braille for the visually impaired. Other ex- amples of assistive devices include wheelchairs, crutches, callipers, prostheses, JAWS, magnifi- ers, Interpreters, medication etc. Disclosure - a person who has disclosed their disability has the right to confidentiality. It is important to make employees aware of the disclo- sure process, who to go to and what documents to complete.

8 GRP2018 STUDENT PERSPECTIVE On Thursday, 25 January of this year, I finally re- ceived my student visa at the South African consul- ate in Mauritius, to enable me to join my classmates for the Masters in Management, Innovation studies program at the Wits Business School. Even though this was not my first visit to South Africa, I was incredibly excited, as I was finally going to be en- rolled as a full-time student at the world-renowned University of the Witwatersrand for my postgraduate education! When I arrived at the Business School, I was ap- preciative to be greeted by warm smiles, an engag- ing faculty and brilliant professionals from diverse companies, with varying expertise. I applied to Wits in anticipation of a world-class university experi- ence and a trail-blazing program in Innovation, with faculty representatives of different countries and a director, Dr. Diran Soumonni, from Benin at the helm. So far, my program has allowed me to engage with brilliant academic minds, such as Nigerian-born Prof. Kalu Ojah and South African Prof. Chris van der Hoven, who tirelessly bring a wealth of experi- ence to their work.
As a Ghanaian who was educated in the Unit- ed States, and who recently taught students and staff from over 30 different countries at the African Leadership University (ALU) in Mauritius, I am conscious of inclusivity. I remain grateful for the intentionality with which we approached this at ALU, as an academic institution. On campus in Mauritius, the representation of different nationalities and the diversity of thought helped us to approach familiar topics in new ways. We also broke new ground with the aid of varied and nuanced understandings informing our discussions in and outside the class- room. We explored important subjects like deco- loniality, feminism, patriarchy, culture, economics and entrepreneurship with a myriad of contributions from people of different identities. This added to the richness of the university experience. I feel a bit of that is lacking at Wits and there is room for improve- ment in relation to gender, black and international representation among faculty & staff across all campuses. I think the Wits community would benefit from enrolling more international students into its programs - as the global world is keenly shaped by an informed and inclusive community, and so should a world-class institution.
Given my experience as an international student, and in multicultural environments, I have sought an inclusive and mutually enriching experience at Wits. I have been very intentional in my engagement with Wits, and the broader Johannesburg community, by seeking spaces that would allow me to learn and also to make my own unique contribution. I have found these at the PiG (Postgraduate Club), where I have sparred with different people on issues of poli- tics and economics in South Africa; at the inter-resi- dence soccer league, where I play for the Wits Junc- tion team, allowing me to build relationships that have welcomed me into a broader community, as well as through different cultural experiences of the city. I am also grateful to be plugged into the Wits Tshimologong entrepreneurial community, where my co-founder, Zinhle Mkhabela, and I have found- ed an edTech startup, Kanea, to create learning journeys and playbooks that upskill graduates and professionals of all nationalities and backgrounds in the advent of the 4th Industrial Revolution. My Wits experience continues to highlight the importance of building inclusive communities for the benefit of enriching the academic journey and experience and I am truly proud and grateful to be a Witsie!
