Why should you focus on diversity?
It’s simply smart business. How do you even begin? By making a business case tying diversity and inclusion to an organization’s objectives and overall success.
In the past, diversity was seen as more of a compliance topic where now the talk has transformed into a more holistic approach focused on acquiring, developing, and retaining diverse talent. To be successful, diversity and inclusion must be embedded in the culture of an organization and fully supported by leaders. This means top-down, bottom-up, inclusive strategies that inspire innovative and creative thinking, and that comes from a diversity of perspectives.
