As globalization and urbanization increasingly bring diverse people from different corners of the world together, and digital connections erase physical boundaries, fostering inclusion and diversity is more important than ever – for work communities and society as a whole.
Diversity is a fact. It is what makes us unique – gender, ethnicity, age, religion, abilities, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, and beyond. It’s about the visible and non-visible diversity. Inclusion is a choice we must consciously make every day. It is about acknowledging we all have biases. The responsibility lies in choosing to identify where those gaps exist, recognising their impact and choosing to effectively manage how to embrace and celebrate differences.
