We often think there is only one type of humour: ours. And whoever isn't laughing at our jokes has no sense of humour. Your sense of humour determines who you are and says a lot about you, your personality, your background, your values.
Today, diversity and inclusion are key organisational challenges. What if there is an unexpected solution to foster inclusion and improve diversity?
