Diversity and Inclusion
“In simple terms, diversity is the mix that creates value; inclusion is getting the mix to work well together.”
RBC Diversity Blueprint™ Report
We are stepping into a new era, where diversity has become unavoidable. Globalization, technology and a completely new way of thinking about jobs and work are reshaping the way we do business. Organizations and teams are formed by individuals belonging to a large number of cultures: national, ethnic, age, and gender. The result is a network of diverse groups of people with very different values and beliefs, which translate into very different ways of communicating and establishing professional relationships.
Simply hiring a diverse pool of employees does not in itself yield better results. In fact, chances are productivity decreases because of issues like:
- Unconscious Bias.
- Lack of understanding how Cultural Values & Beliefs affect communication and business interactions.
- Lack of appropriate Culture Metrics & Tools, which allow employees to develop and achieve their full potential.
