In any organization, diversity, equity and inclusion are more than just important – they’re essential. Amazing things can happen when people from different races, genders, cultures, abilities and beliefs work together to execute a plan. Whether you’re brainstorming new concepts, executing a project or trying to solve a business problem, involving people with different backgrounds and experiences can help you achieve your goals more effectively and efficiently.
If you want to help create a more inclusive and informed culture within your own organization, one of the first steps you can take is to establish a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) council. DEI councils can help challenge your colleagues and leaders to create a more accepting workplace for all – and even the smallest strides can make a big difference.
To help you get started, take a look at these tips from our very own DEI council leaders here at DeVry University.
Foster an environment of respect and acceptance
Build awareness and education regarding diversity issues.
Create a more collaborative, creative and engaged workforce.
Identify and address unconscious bias.
Provide a safe place to discuss questions or concerns.
Diversity in the workplace can also impact a company’s performance. A recent study showed when diverse teams made a business decision, they outperformed individual decision-makers up to 87% of the time. In another study, companies with above-average diversity scores reported an average of nearly 20% more innovation revenue than those with a below-average score.
