Why is it important to Invest in Diversity?
Investing in diversity means supporting companies that regularly showcase their focus on equity and inclusion. This could include companies focused on raising up the voices’ of women, LGTBQ+ people, and people of color.
We still have a long ways to go to dismantle prejudice in the United States; however, supporting diversity and inclusion in the workplace is a critical first step. Having diverse leadership within a company means that more voices and perspectives are included and listened to.
How does Invested Interests Invest in Diversity?
