“Managing” Diversity

It has been a while since we posted, and it is already February! I stumbled upon this article recently and while it is a lengthy read, it is very interesting! It dives into why the answer to “Why we should care about Diversity?” is no longer “it is the right thing to do” but instead it is that there is an increase in organizational efficiency in diverse and inclusive companies and teams. This article goes thru numerous examples of companies, but it also points out the numerous approaches used including the learning-and-effectiveness paradigm which provides a new way to learn from current diversity efforts to enhance initiatives. Check out the article in the Harvard Business Review, it is a great read!
