How to Solidify Inclusion in the Workplace


Diversity and inclusion are invaluable in the workplace in numerous ways. Recent studies have shown that diversity pays off: diverse workplaces generate 19% more revenue than a non-diverse one. But diversity is only the first step. If diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance. Diversity without inclusion is not enough. You’re going to need both if you want either to work at all.

So, what exactly is the latter half of diversity and inclusion? Inclusion is the feeling that each member of your organization has a place at the table, no matter their title. You want your employees to feel that their voice is being heard because then it’s more likely they’re going to speak in the first place.

This means that by being an inclusive leader, it says to your employees what they can expect from you as a leader in the workplace. This makes them feel included and therefore, more likely to speak.
