Why is diversity important in the workplace?
To me, diversity is firstly about fairness and creating equal opportunities for everyone, which is important for a healthy society. It also means a workplace has a wider pool of ideas, experiences and views from which to draw on, which helps to create a dynamic and innovative work environment. This in turn attracts the best talent and has been proven to produce better financial results.
A workplace should be reflective of the world around us and although there is a long way to go, I am heartened that it is largely now recognised that championing diversity not preserving uniformity is the future.
