Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) in the workforce refer to hiring talent from all walks of life, across the entire spectrum of ethnicity, genders, and abilities.
In the words of Verna Myers, Inclusion Strategist at Netflix, Verna Myers:
DE&I allows me to … make sure that I’m giving a voice to the voiceless. I’m making an impact in a positive way and using my platform to make a difference.
Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Randstad
McKinsey found that higher gender diversity companies reported a 15 percent above-average profitability. They also found a positive correlation between executive-level gender and ethnic diversity and financial performance.
Diversity is a path to a successful future if it is pursued and implemented correctly.
In a global economy, companies that strive to find and keep top talent will dominate the future. DE&I should be a critical component of your plans to make sure your organization is one of them.
