Great minds think differently. Good leaders recognize that surrounding themselves with diverse voices benefits everyone.
Diversity should be a priority for every business. Ensuring the growth of diversity, equity and inclusion creates work environments that attract and retain the best talent.
The true work of diversity, equity and inclusion isn’t to just be representative, it’s a tool for innovation and increased production. Business innovation is often stagnant when people making the decisions are from similar backgrounds.
Diversity initiatives should include, but not be limited to, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color), LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, asexual and many other terms such as non-binary and pansexual), all gender identities, and people with disabilities.
Kentucky has many resources to help bolster diversity and inclusion efforts for your business.
