Zoom virtual background and brightness adjustment. Problem solved. (Not the real inclusion stuff obviously but the stuff you mentioned). If anything WFH imo is one of the most inclusive environments, I’m not sure what non-easily fixed problems you’re referring to (please mention them so they can be addressed)? I hope you’re being serious and not just trying to find a D&I issue for the sake of it.

Interesting question...I would say the following: 1) Not mandate video calls 2) Create structure on calls so that every person gets to speak at least once so that loudest voices aren’t drowning out others 3) Not have lunchtime mandatory meetings or meetings after 4 pm to accommodate parents

M1, you just have to pick your battles with these kinds of issues. When other people don’t, it makes everyone else’s battles harder to win. It seems innocuous but there’s a good reason for the strong pushback (though a lot of people are also pushing back cause they think the issue is just a joke).

Lighting needs for dark skinned people? What? LOL

I don’t think anyone should feel obligated to go on camera. We should recognize that everyone has personal needs and preferences. I had a medical issue and didn’t want to go on camera. In the middle of explaining to someone why I didn’t want to be on camera, I thought to myself “why do I owe anyone an explanation?” And my answer was “I don’t.” This is my home and I will share if I feel comfortable.

Teams has a ‘blur’ feature where it basically highlights the person and blurs everything behind them. Zoom allows you to set backgrounds and I think blur things as well.
