Inclusion has been proven to have direct, measurable effects on stability and success in businesses, large and small. Indeed, most organizations actively pursue diverse representation in their workplace, but this won’t necessarily ensure that all employees feel included.

Unconscious bias is part of the problem -- but not the only one -- especially in areas like recruitment, promotion, and performance management as well as being a major barrier in efforts to improve diversity and inclusion. The Covid-19 pandemic has also added additional strain to the pre-existing social challenges, which make it difficult for programs to gain any ground.
