Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion are the words that we always listen to within our organizations. Whether it is the HR department or any team building we always emphasize Diversity and Inclusion. It is not just policies, programs, or headcount. Equitable employers outpace their competitors by respecting the unique needs, perspectives, and potential of all their team members. As a result, diverse and inclusive workplaces earn deeper trust and more commitment from their employees. 
How are Diversity and Inclusion different?
Diversity and inclusion are always used as one but they are different and each word conveys a different meaning. When we talk about diversity, we’re talking about how something is represented or put together. The degree to which the contributions, presence, and viewpoints of other groups of individuals are appreciated and incorporated into a setting can be referred to as an instance of inclusion.
Diverse, but not inclusive, is a setting in which people of many various sexes, ethnicities, nations, and sexual orientations and identities coexist, but only a small number of those individuals’ voices are heard or appreciated.
Why is Diversity and Inclusion important for an organization?
The benefits of diversity and inclusion (D&I) are evident, but implementing it is tough. More than half of all organizations believe they currently have a diverse and welcoming workplace culture. According to the survey, only 40% of employees believe that their manager promotes an inclusive workplace.
Research has shown that there are many benefits of D&I in the organization. Few are:

Enhanced Employee Performance: An ethnically diversified company is 35 percent more likely to surpass their contemporaries. To put it another way, employees are more likely to feel at ease and confident in themselves in an inclusive workplace.
Recruiting new Candidates: Companies that demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion tend to attract more candidates. People who believe they don’t belong in a more homogeneous environment may find it difficult to adjust. People tend to stick around when they feel valued and can see that their coworkers value them (and they refer others).
New Ideas and Innovation: Diverse backgrounds and work experiences in a team lead to more innovative solutions and ideas. 
Enhancement in Market value: In the world of the internet where everything is connected and a single thing can’t go unnoticed, organizations implementing D&I always get an enhancement in their value from most of the community.  Customers that identify as LGBTQ or as having a disability have an opportunity to effectively promote to your organization. 

It’s still a long way to go in terms of workplace diversity, but progress has been made. When it comes to workplace diversity, organizations are still figuring out how to incorporate inclusion, which is a critical component.
