Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Workplace:
More Than Just a Percentage.
Did you know that diverse and inclusive companies are roughly 15-35 percent more likely to experience above-average financial returns? Companies who understand the value of creating a diverse environment by celebrating all backgrounds, experiences and personal styles, will always outperform their competitors.
Many people don’t realize that diversity is not only defined by ethnicity; it also encompasses all of the parts of our backgrounds and experiences that make each one of us unique. Examples include: Age, Disability, Ethnicity/national origin, Family status, Sex, Gender identity, Generation, Language, Life experiences, Neurodiversity, Organizational function, Race, Religion, Sexual orientation, and Veteran status.
If you’re not realizing high returns, this could be a result of needing a more diverse and inclusive workforce. In a healthy workplace environment, a variety of voices should be encouraged, heard, and included.
Is there solid representation of diverse individuals at different levels within your company? Is there acceptance?
If your answer is that your organization needs improvement, you’ve probably also asked yourself the following questions:
How can I increase diversity within my organization? What are the first steps to inclusivity in the workplace? Who can help me learn?
