Diversity and inclusion have become buzzwords with human resources and in the media at large. You’ve probably seen and heard stories about how organizations are creating diverse and inclusive workforces, and maybe they’ve left you wondering why and how your organization could improve its diversity and inclusion efforts.
Millennials know that, for many, changing the world begins with the workplace. A lot of progress has been made for those who’ve faced challenges and discrimination based on sex, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion or gender identity, but there’s still a ways to go. Millennials are more likely to share socially progressive values. We value the idea of accepting everyone and maintaining a well-rounded work culture representing many backgrounds and skill sets. With young people flooding the job market, many major companies are adopting diversity and inclusion policies to match those values.
