The Case for D&I

Why is diversity so necessary in today’s workforce?

  1. According to the Diversity Matters Report (2015), ethnically diverse companies earn 35% higher profits; gender-diverse companies account for a 15% increase in revenues.
  2. According to Why Diverse Teams Are Smarter (2016) published by The Harvard Business Review, diverse teams tend to challenge each other ideas and gain greater insights and breakthroughs for their businesses.
  3. Diverse staffs bring a wealth of unique cultural perspectives to facilitate innovation and cross-cultural connections.
