Today’s complex business problems demand a range of viewpoints to get solved. And organizations that do not value an array of perspectives lose growth opportunities and suppress innovation. That’s the value of having a diverse workforce. Diversity in itself isn’t the goal, however. It’s the outcome of the organization’s efforts to be inclusive: to cast a wide net for talent and to value people in whatever package they come in. In these presentations, you will come to better understand what organizations can do to create inclusive cultures—from hiring to professional development, retention and succession planning.
