Diversity represents the full spectrum of human demographic differences including but not limited to - race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status or physical disability. Workplace diversity is understanding, accepting and valuing those differences between people. Inclusion refers to a cultural and environmental feeling of belonging. Workplace inclusion is having a supportive and respectful environment that increases employee collaboration. Together, diversity and inclusion reinforce our firm mission, vision and values. Having a formal diversity and inclusion program means that we are committed to having a culture of various backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. By doing so, we leverage its effects to achieve a competitive business advantage.
