The Benefits of Diversity and Inclusion

In Diversity and Inclusion by Mark Stewart

There are two major reasons why you should be more Diverse and Inclusive. At Cobblestone we have dug deeper to connect the dots and have a look at the small benefits that add up to something greater.

As a team, we have put in a lot of time reading the research and learning from the experts to get a clear understanding of why Diversity and Inclusion is such an important topic.

Understanding why Diversity and Inclusion are crucial for every organisation.

The first reason has already been covered in much detail elsewhere. It is not something that we are going to dwell too long on. Undeniably, creating an inclusive work environment is one of the main benefits and fundamentally the right thing to do. While this might be true, we are much more interested in the second reason.

An increase in Diversity and Inclusion will likely lead to growth in the company. Also, it’s not only beneficial at work but it gives more opportunity for you as an individual. With this in mind, we knew that we had to examine this matter in much greater detail. We decided that it was not good enough to simply be told this is the case. We had to understand why this is the case, what are the steps taken or elements required to get from implementing D&I to becoming a more profitable company. That is to say that what we attempted to do in this course is to connect the dots.

In the video, we mention the McKinsey study that found a huge growth in gender and ethnically diverse companies. We looked specifically at the results of the changes that companies make and the consequences of the actions that will lead to such great results.

In the first module of our course, we distill the positive benefits down to a compact list of five major benefits that lead to greater success. Other modules, cover the obstacles, fears, unconscious biases and how to take your best step forward.
