3 Things to Know: Supporting Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
Diversity and inclusion is an important part of any successful business. Here are three things to know about supporting D&I in your workplace—as well as information on a new webinar series from GCP's Equity & Inclusion Division.
First thing to know: No business is too small for D&I
Diversity and inclusion is just as—if not more—valuable for a small business as it is for a larger company. Having a diverse group of workers—both physically and in terms of ways of thinking—can create more innovation, creativity, and productivity. You probably don’t have a staff member dedicated to diversity and inclusion so it’s important you know how to manage this area with your small business.
Check out this quick, 3-minute interview with Compass Consulting Services that discusses how a small business can implement diversity and potential benefits for doing so.
Second thing to know: It starts with a conversation
Simply broaching the subject of race and diversity and possible relevant initiatives is the first step in supporting an inclusive culture at work. But where do you begin and how do you make sure these conversations are effective?
Check out this recent GCP webinar for some great information about how to effectively approach and continue to discuss topics such as race and supplier diversity in the workplace.
Third thing to know: GCP and COSE are here to support you
GCP’s Equity & Inclusion Division offers helpful programs and resources to support you as you support diversity and inclusion in your workplace. Join us on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 from noon to 1:15 p.m. as we kick off our 2021 programming with our new webinar series, “But what does it mean?” This series is devoted to translating research studies and data into meaningful action.
