There is a direct link between diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The future success of any globally-oriented organization relies on the ability to manage a diverse body of talent that can bring innovative ideas, perspectives and views to their work. The challenge and problems created by workplace diversity can be turned into a strategic organizational asset if an organization is able to capitalize on this melting pot of diverse talents. The most effective method to leverage workforce diversity is to create workplace culture of inclusion.

A workplace culture that values every person, provides them with opportunities to develop, learn, share their ideas and challenge each other. When employees feel included, their level of engagement, commitment and loyalty increases. However, an inclusive organizational work culture requires leaders with high levels of diversity intelligence.

By aligning diversity intelligence with leadership values, strategies and communication practices to ensure a truly collaborative, inclusive and engaging work culture environment, we can inspire our high performance teams to manage the change that is inevitable with innovation in the 21st century. Organizations can respond to business opportunities more rapidly and creatively, especially in the global arena. More importantly, if the organizational environment does not support diversity broadly, one risks losing talent to competitors.
