Valuing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Valuing differences creates a work environment where people can and want to do their best. As the economy becomes increasingly global, our workforce has become more diverse. The typical definition of diversity – race, ethnicity, culture – now includes amazing perspectives, styles and thought. Innovation, teamwork, and the bottom line can be improved by truly valuing each other. Leaders who value diversity, seek to understand different perspectives and cultures, contribute to a work climate where differences are valued and supported, and are sensitive to cultural norms, expectations, and ways of communicating.
