Benefits of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
DEI has the potential to positively address biases and prejudices that may happen within an organization. Showing that DEI is important to your organization as well as your training strategy will go a long way in showing dedication to creating a truly inclusive workplace. Having and implementing that strategy has many benefits for your people and your business.
“Studies show businesses that embrace gender diversity are 15% more competitive than their peers. Companies that are more racially and ethnically diverse are 35% more likely to beat national industry median financial returns. Having a DEI strategy in place can have a direct impact on the financial bottom line and create a more welcoming work environment for your business or organization.”
