https://www.societyfordiversity.org/Throughout the year 2020, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) remained a priority for both the human resources (HR) department, as well as research and development professionals.
Outside of the HR department, executive owners and leaders focus more on the DEI criteria, incorporate it into their business culture, and use it for vital business advantages.
Keeping in view the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, its training should be considered an integral part of every organization. Diversity and inclusion training drives growth and innovation.
Diversity and inclusion are also important factors that job seekers usually consider before accepting any job.
Though this criterion is important for most job seekers, it holds more value and importance for the people who fall into a minority group.
According to a survey, 72% of women (vs. 62% of men), 89% of African Americans, 80% of Asians, and 70% of Latinos ranked workforce diversity as an important factor while searching for any job.
