What is Diversity & Inclusion?
Every commercial enterprise has a duty to provide care and fairness to their employees, regardless of demographic differences like age, nationality, faith or mobility, and in fact they must follow laws put in place to ensure this is provided. But because a one-size-fits-all approach will never work in such a diverse world, it’s highly recommended that a company has a Diversity & Inclusion team to attend to our many different needs.
It’s the job of D&I professionals to understand the day-to-day challenges that people of various backgrounds and abilities may encounter, and strive to create equality in the workplace. Their role entails staff training and education, ensuring office accessibility, assessing diversity and inclusiveness of company processes, communications and workforce, and much more.
