When people think of diversity, what comes to mind? Is it a photograph of friends of varying ages, races, sexes, and ethnicities sharing a meal, laughing? Or, is it people of various religions—Catholics, Jews, and Muslims cohabiting the same space as they did and continue to do in Toledo, Spain?
The answer to all the above is: yes. No matter what the example, diversity comes in many forms, and the same fact is true in business and diversity and inclusion programs. No one program will look the same, but that begs a second question. If a business wants to implement and develop a diversity and inclusion program, where do they start, and how do they ensure that said program continues to evolve in tandem with the company?
The answer lies within.
