Did you know that by diversifying your workforce and including everyone in the processes increases productivity?
Diversity seeks to improve the representation of underrepresented groups in an organization, often because of affirmative action plans. Inclusion often requires changes in individual attitudes and behaviors. When diversity is combined with a culture of inclusion it leads to better performance and higher levels of innovation. Diversity alone is insufficient. You must have a culture of inclusion that is tied to the core mission and objectives of the organization to be effective. Diversity and inclusion provide for a variety of viewpoints and experiences that makes all employees feel valued and respected.
To create and carry out a diversity and inclusion initiative it must begin at the top levels of the organization and the objectives must be clearly defined. Problem areas must be identified, and a plan developed to address these areas, adjusting as needed for ongoing improvements.
Creating a successful diversity and inclusion environment requires making changes to policies and procedures, targeted recruitment, and employee training at a minimum.
