The discussion and pursuit of greater workplace diversity and inclusion are occurring at a furious pace in society today, with many organizations seeking to build a business case to support their efforts. But is the business case for diversity a silver bullet? Can we draw a straight line between greater diversity and improved financial performance? Or is the business case, in fact, a more nuanced discussion of both the business and moral imperatives of diversity and their impacts on talent, competitiveness, and innovation?
Listen to this webinar recording to hear about the pros and cons of the “traditional business case” and how we are reframing the discussion to advance meaningful change.
