Executives are prioritizing the need for diverse teams and leadership, which has translated into a surge in demand for “Diversity and Inclusion Lead” roles. With these roles, a primary responsibility will be to understand the organization’s current employee makeup, what culture is underpinning every employee’s day-to-day work and how to potentially change that culture to work for everyone in the organization.A Culture of Inclusion means Promoting Workplace Diversity and Belonging! Diversity is an important issue for any modern business.
