DIVERSITY AWARENESS MONTH
Celebrating Differences and Powering Inclusive Leadership
October is Diversity Awareness Month – a time to celebrate, embrace, and raise awareness around the importance of diversity. It’s also a time to reflect on the obstacles and barriers present in the workplace today and the steps we can take, as companies and as individuals, to overcome them.
BENEFITS OF EMBRACING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION:
- Higher revenue growth
- Greater readiness to innovate
- Increased ability to recruit a diverse talent pool
- 5.4 times higher employee retention
- Consulting company McKinsey & Company reports that businesses with racially and ethnically diverse employee populations who are also more gender diverse outperform less diverse organizations
- Diversity and inclusion make us better; better colleagues, better leaders, and better partners..
