– Are you confused by all the mythology around Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) – myths like, “Diversity is only about non-majority people,” and “Diversity is a win/lose proposition”?
– Does your growing business suffer from “diversity debt”?
– Have you ever wondered, “Why can’t we all just get along?”
As a small business owner, if you think, “Diversity and inclusion don’t apply to me. It’s only for big businesses,” you’re wrong. The practice of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) applies to everything we do – from internal processes and procedures to interactions with clients to customer sales and interacting within our communities.
Navigating the complexities of D&I can be daunting. It’s easy to be afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, but avoiding D&I isn’t a solution. Businesses often “do diversity” because it’s the “right” thing. The truth is, it’s the only thing. When we look at diversity broadly – the influences, experiences, and education that create our unique perspectives in the world – it becomes obvious diversity is a part of every interaction we have. Not only do diversity and inclusion permeate every area of our lives, but both are essential to building a successful, thriving business.
If you’re interested in connecting to clients, customers and employees in a more meaningful way, then join us to learn how to begin building a more inclusive business culture.
