Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Belonging
Creating an Inclusive Culture for all
Diversity and inclusion have been topics of discussion for several decades now, with many organizations publicly committing to these values for an extended period of time. However, despite the Fortune 500 list showing a doubling in the proportion of female CEOs over the past 10 years, the figure remains abysmal at 7.4%. Furthermore, only one black woman has managed to make it onto the list.
In another disheartening statistic, 85% of university-educated Americans with autism are unemployed.
Additionally, a survey revealed that in the past year, 77% of transgender individuals have taken active measures to avoid being mistreated at work, such as concealing their sexual identities.
Given that diversity encompasses several aspects, we are dedicated to aiding organizations in their journey towards becoming more inclusive. Read further to understand our approach.
