Leaders that are intentional about infusing DE&I, and building a staff with diverse backgrounds and diverse thoughts, will see enormous return on their investment.

Intuitively, we know that diversity, equity and inclusion https://www.benefitspro.com/sites/benefitspro/2021/08/30/are-you-considering-diversity-equity-and-inclusion-in-your-employee-benefits-program/(DEI) is important for human progress. Of course, it’s critical because of the inherent need for more equality, fairness, and representation. But diversity isn’t just a social good, it’s a must-have for businesses that want to stay competitive.

The term DE&I often conjures images of a workplace consisting of people of different colors, sexual orientation, cultures and genders. While those things certainly explain a component of diversity, it’s only part of what diversity includes and what makes it so important. Physical and social aspects only make up about half of diversity. The remainder lies in diversity of thought construct.
