Fostering workplace diversity is good for business, leading to increased creativity, innovation and productivity. A workplace that is reflective of the community it serves is also more likely to be welcoming, culturally safe and accessible to the community. Leaders have a critical role in cultivating a workplace culture where all people feel respected and valued and the opportunity and resources to fully contribute their perspectives and talents.
