Research shows that companies that focus on a diverse and inclusive work environment are more likely to outperform their peers. Having a diverse organization goes beyond representation across gender, race/ethnicity, generation, sexual orientation, national status, veteran status, disabilities, level within an organization, and tenure with an organization. Diversity also includes the blending of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, which is known as cognitive diversity.

To be successful, organizations need to continually assess their policies, procedures, and programs to ensure that they are not adversely impacting a minority group or inhibiting the growth of cognitive diversity. Additionally, organizations should actively foster an inclusive environment that starts at the highest level of leadership.
