One of the most critical conversations in today’s workplace is diversity and inclusion. Companies and organizations worldwide are more intentional about applying these hiring and management practices. It’s the right thing to do, and companies that take diversity and inclusion seriously see tangible benefits.
According to a study done by Boston Consulting Group, companies with diverse leadership and management saw a 19% revenue increase compared to other companies with less diverse leadership. Through our expert-led diversity and inclusion training courses, you can learn to apply these skills to help bring lasting change to your organization. From associate to manager, everyone can benefit from diversity and inclusion training.

While diversity and inclusion often appear in the conversation in tandem, they are actually two different concepts. Let’s look at both individually to understand their importance in the workplace.
Diversity means that your organization consists of people from different races, gender identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and experiences. It’s meant to reflect the society in which we live and operate. There are nuances and complexities involved with diversity, but the main point is to have different perspectives represented in your organization.
Inclusion means that everyone in the organization has equal access to resources, opportunities, and can freely contribute to the success of the company. This pursuit ensures that people from marginalized backgrounds are equal in the workplace.
When we discuss diversity and inclusion, it’s crucial to understand both concepts on their own and how they come together. It’s not enough to bring people into the fold on diversity alone—organizations must ensure that inclusion and equity are part of the equation.
According to our data, 60% of employees responded that they don’t believe companies properly implement diversity and inclusion in the workplace. There are a few different ways you can promote diversity, inclusion, and equity in the workplace:
- Recognizing unconscious bias
- Practice being an “ally”
- Campaign for more diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace
These methods only scratch the surface in terms of diversity and inclusion. We design our diversity and inclusion training programs to teach individuals, teams, and entire organizations to implement real-world, tangible practices.
