Diversity and Inclusion as a discussion is far more amplified than it has been in the past. While it still remains a challenging conversation to have in many workplaces, more C-suite executives are making D&I practices a high priority. Culture is a more accepting normal. Participation of women in the workforce has increased. LGBTQI+ inclusion has been better than before. Companies are investing in digital accessibility so that they can increase the participation of people with disabilities in the workforce. Employee Resource Groups are working closely with D&I Managers to help shape the company culture. Veterans are welcomed into the corporate space.
Diversity and Inclusion as a discussion is far more amplified than it has been in the past. While there’s progress, remaking of the company culture is an ongoing practice. Advocates & Allies need to create safe and supportive spaces for employees to ask questions, be themselves, and contribute to their teams at their fullest potential.
