Diversity and inclusion in the workplace are imperative for a sustainable, competitive and innovative company and society at large. Diversity also goes beyond the outward perception of a company – it includes how the internal structures work and signals the value systems of an organization’s management or leadership team. Diversity and inclusion, although often used interchangeably, are actually distinct yet complementary concepts. We cannot succeed at an inclusive workplace without diversity and vice versa. Understanding what these concepts mean and implementing actionable structures are important steps contributing to the success and strength of an organization.
What can leadership in a company do to foster real diversity and inclusion? It is time for less talking and more action. Join us for a discussion on how to create an environment in the workplace where people feel included and valued for the differences they bring to the table.
This event is the first in a series designed by Diversify to center Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace. We are happy to partner with HerSpace and Business for Peace on this important and timely topic. We look forward to seeing you!
