Many companies and organizations are making conscious efforts to further workplace diversity. It’s equally important for these organizations to have an inclusive culture to ensure that diverse voices are appreciated and can thrive. A truly inclusive and diverse workplace is one where employees are appreciated and honored for their differences. When that trust and respect is established, new and creative ideas emerge. As a result, diverse teams are proven to be more innovative and inclusive companies more profitable.
