Creating a Sustainable Inclusion & Diversity Strategy

If you are considering deploying a new Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) program or revitalizing an existing one, it seems logical to create a unique diversity strategy. This paper will make the case for a different approach; one that utilizes the strengths of your company. By examining your corporate three-to-five-year goals and enhancing or building an I&D effort that directly supports them, you can create an I&D strategy that aligns with what your company is trying to achieve, and is not seen as a separate initiative.
