Catalyst Japan Solutions Summit Workbook 2016

In truly inclusive organizations, diverse groups of individuals contribute fully, grow meaningfully, and feel a strong sense of belongingness to the organization. Companies that emphasize organizational inclusion in their strategic initiatives can unlock innovation and improve business outcomes.
