Promoting Diversity in the Workplace by Sunaina Vij

A one size fits all approach doesn’t work for organizations when it comes to implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.

Change only happens when leadership really values the well-being of their employees and is committed to making their voices heard.

No two people are the same and if leaders really value employees as their greatest asset, then they need to really consider what efforts they are willing to make them feel included, and have their voices heard. It is all because the change needs to come from the #top.

When employees don’t feel that their ideas, presence, or contributions are truly valued or taken seriously by their organization, they will eventually leave.

TCP’s Inclusion and Intercultural Expert, @SunainaVij, advises leaders to look #inwards and think about why they want the change to happen and then understand from their employees what changes need to be made.
