Diversity is only half the battle. Welcoming a diverse population to the workplace is just the beginning. If those people are not included in the workplace, we lose out on the point of diversity. The argument behind diversity is to strengthen business with the different opinions and viewpoints that different people bring. But so often, workplaces demonstrate diversity without the benefits of what different people bring to the table.
It’s not enough to have female representation or people from different cultures, if we don’t listen to them, we miss their valuable contributions.
Include the diversity you’ve worked so hard to create.
