Sanjana Vijayann, Diversity and Inclusion Manager here at WCC, shares a recent report done by Deloitte on innovation, improved resilience, increased profits– the benefits of an inclusive workplace
We are in a pivotal moment in history where we are called to recognize the systemic racism and discrimination rampant in society while committing to taking tangible steps towards creating equity, being anti-racist, and advancing reconciliation.
We are also experiencing and recovering from the devastating impact of COVID-19 on our communities and businesses.
Incorporating diversity, inclusion, and equity (DEI) practices within your business are mutually beneficial to you and the community at large. It provides meaningful economic opportunities to equity–deserving groups disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, while enhancing your business. DEI measures improve profit margins, improve business resiliency in the face of adversity, and attract top talent from the workforce.
When speaking to businesses, these common questions arise: what can we do to move from talking about diversity to taking tangible action? How can we avoid tokenism? Where do we start?
With answers to these tough questions and clear recommendations for businesses, Deloitte successfully makes a case for full integration of diversity, inclusion, and equity practices.
