Diversity and inclusion should be at the forefront of every company's goals for success. Diversity of opinion, complexion, and community are paramount in providing perspective to achieve the company vision. It takes a committed group of individuals to reap the rewards of a diverse environment.
The efforts to stimulate diversity and inclusion are not achieved overnight, and neither are the results, which is why you must remain patient with your efforts. Matt Rivera, who sits on the Yoh board of diversity and inclusion, said, "If you're saying you have mastered diversity and inclusion, you probably don't truly understand the definition of the word." Promoting diversity and inclusion is an arduous endeavor, but the rewards of striving towards a better environment are sensational.
