Studies show that teams or organizations made up of individuals with a more diverse mix of qualities, experiences and work styles tend to have available a richer set of ideas, perspectives and approaches to a business issue. Recognizing the benefits of a more diverse and inclusive workplace is an integral part of remaining profitable, productive and innovative. This is demonstrated in the below article, Northrop Grumman Noted for Diversity.
The World Day for Cultural Diversity, held on May 21, is an occasion for people to deepen their understanding of cultural diversity. There are many ways to celebrate diversity in the workplace on this day. It can be something as simple as making respect mandatory by having conversations about core values with others and holding people accountable for their words and actions.
NOVA SHRM is proud to support the awareness, appreciation and advocacy of diversity where it has a positive impact on our membership, local organizations, workforce and the community at large.
