Diversity Efforts Alone Have Not Worked to Improve Business Results...
- Infrequently linked to a business strategy
- Often seen as an HR initiative, primarily recruiting
- Impeded by resistance to corporate culture change
- Often dismissed as an individual initiative rather than corporate advantage
Inclusion Is the Answer.
By establishing a culture of inclusion, i.e., mobilizing your diverse workforce and being open to a variety of ideas, knowledge, perspectives, and styles from everyone, you will achieve substantial internal benefits such as improving employee engagement, productivity, retention and innovation, and external benefits by selling goods and services to a more diverse audience.

Inclusion: The New Competitive Business Advantage
by Shirley Engelmeier, CEO if InclusionINC
Looking for a competitive compass to navigate the uncertainties of business in the 21st century? Inclusion is the answer.
We are now at a place where we can't not face these sensitivities and have real conversations about why this is in place, what it is going to benefit, and then have hard metrics. Not 'How many I've hired,' but 'What is the value proposition? What is the return on investment?'Clarence Nunn, President and CEO, GE Capital Fleet Services
