Oprah is changing! The media mogul has decided to elimate the word ‘diversity’ from her vocabulary for a more correct word—‘included.’ “I used to use the word ‘diversity’ all the time. ‘We want more diverse stories, more diverse characters …,’ ” Oprah told The Hollywood Reporter during an interview with director Ava DuVernay. “Now I really eliminated it from my vocabulary because I’ve learned from [Ava] that the word that most articulates what we’re looking for is what we want to be: included. It’s to have a seat at the table where the decisions are being made.”

Ava added, “We aren’t sitting around talking about diversity. Just like we aren’t sitting around talking about being black or being women. We’re just being that.”

Yes the word included is totally right!
