The triad of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) continues to occupy the conversations in educational spheres across the world. The discourse on inclusion and social justice is shifting from decoloniality, racial bigotry, negative ethnicities to that of fostering global understanding while de-perpetuating the narratives of victims versus perpetuators. These disparities were carried over into the years after independence and have influenced the socio-economic fabric of African societies to date. While there is some credence to this, given that the colonists adopted a system of divide-and-rule to maintain control over their colonies, several years after independence, it is time to liberate thought patterns from these mental traps. While previous conversations dwelt on historical injustices of transatlantic slavery, racial oppression and colonialism, modern debates should focus on how to make our workplaces and society in general more inclusive, equitable amidst the diversities of cultures that exist in the world today.
