More business leaders are recognizing that cultivating diversity and equality in the workplace is not just the right thing to do, but also the smart thing. Research shows that customers and employees expect companies to drive equality and that it has a tangible impact on performance, innovation, and the bottom line. 80% of business professionals also believe that companies have a responsibility to go beyond profit and make an impact on society.
While we know organizations that are gender and culturally diverse are more likely to outperform others, diversity alone doesn’t move businesses forward. Inclusion is integral and indeed the key to leveraging the benefits diversity brings.
