Hi Gerard,

Yes, diversity is a lens you can apply to every area (content, people,
governance, etc.). I don't think it is more used for people than for
content (actually, I do research cultural diversity in content).

The question you posed on how the lack of diversity in content affects the
needs of the readers is an interesting one. It is quite in line with the
Strategic recommendation Prioritize Topics for Impact, which proposes to
study which topics have a more positive impact on society.

Best,
Marc Miquel
