Potential grows when more voices are represented
Creativity and innovation happen when we embrace and encourage diversity. By bringing together people with a range of life experiences, skills and perspectives, we unlock potential that no homogeneous group could achieve on its own.
The strategic value of diversity, equity and inclusion
Diversity, equity and inclusion are connected to various positive business and community outcomes, including:
- Increased profitability
- More creativity, innovation and better problem solving
- Improved employee engagement and retention
- Better organizational reputation
- More prosperous community
- Improved community mental and physical health
The moral imperative of diversity, equity and inclusion
Beyond the strategic business benefits diversity, equity and inclusion can provide, we know various groups have dealt with and continue to deal with oppression.
Our thinking as humans is evolving. We’re building a shared understanding of privilege. And our best leaders and organizations refuse to stay blind to the wrongs of the past. They know we now have the opportunity not only to start to repair the damage but to learn collectively and unlock the type of ingenuity we need to move forward together and tackle the significant challenges of our time.
Our best leaders are choosing to be on the right side of the history we’re now creating.
Unlocking the power of diversity requires a planned, system-wide approach
It’s now commonly recognized that diversity, equity and inclusion bring significant value to workplaces and groups. But achieving it remains a challenge and can’t be left to chance.
When we acknowledge we’re all limited by systemic and individual barriers, we can embrace a more strategic, shared approach.
Improved systems, processes and continuous learning help organizations institutionalize a made-for-them approach to diversity, equity and inclusion.
