“Diversity of thought in business has been proven to increase the effectiveness of decision making and overall business results. One of the key ways to ensure diversity of thought is to ensure we have a diverse employee population who have unique and diverse perspectives and experiences. And we can augment the value of this diversity when we create a culture that welcomes and embraces it, allowing employees to bring their whole selves and all of their experience to work with them and to contribute in the most meaningful ways. In order to support a diverse and inclusive workplace, our policies and practices need to support our diverse communities.
