The Basics of Diversity, Inclusion, & Social Justice in the Workplace

Report

A Guide to Diversity, Inclusion and Social Justice in Your Workplace.
 

According to a McKinsey study, ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to financially outperform ethnically homogenous ones and gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to financially outperform companies lacking gender diversity and social justice practices. A more diverse and inclusive workplace can help your company access all and retain top talent; grow into new markets; develop creative and innovative products and/or services; create a more vibrant company culture; boost brand loyalty; and create equal opportunities for all of your employees.
 
Whether you’re looking to improve your company’s current practices or just getting started, there are a few key elements that go into building a successful Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) program for your workplace.

This guide will help you to identify and establish the core building blocks of a purposeful and productive workplace D&I program, including:

  1. Getting buy-in especially from senior leadership;
  2. Integrating your D&I program into your business structure and processes;
  3. Formalizing basic policies;
  4. Implementing effective trainings for your team; and
  5. Building relationships with external organizations and experts to achieve D&I goals
"Most modern businesses understand how important workplace diversity is. Not only do racially diverse teams outperform non-diverse ones, but bringing together a group of people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences can start conversations about racial and social justice issues, and give organizations the opportunity to address those issues through their work."
