The benefits of business diversity, inclusion and equity have been proven time and again, yet recent statistics show that only 4 of the current Fortune 500 companies have black CEOs, and only 3.2% of senior leadership roles are held by black individuals.
Companies failing to recognize the importance of racial / ethnic diversity and inclusion are not only missing out on a large segment of exceptional talent and expertise, but also ignoring substantial bottom-line business benefits such as these outlined by Forbes:
- 35% greater workplace productivity
- 87% better decision-making capabilities
- 1.4 x the ability to increase company revenue
In order to be successful, it is critical for companies to understand that diversity actually drives better overall business performance.
And for many companies who already recognize this concept, their well-meaning diversity, inclusion and equity initiatives often stall out because company leaders are unsure of exactly what are the right things to do or say.
That’s why, in this episode of LIVE! with Angelique Rewers, we hosted an in-depth discussion with three remarkable guests who are bold, transformative leaders in the space of Corporate Diversity, Inclusion & Equity.
These experts are playing a pivotal role in showing organizations how they can take meaningful steps that truly bring about long-lasting change that goes all the way.
