She articulates how organizations today are evolving beyond superficial tokenism and genuinely embracing diversity by actively recruiting and developing talented individuals from a myriad of backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives.
By providing meaningful opportunities for professional growth and leadership to people of all stripes, these forward-thinking companies are tapping into a wellspring of innovative ideas and solutions. A diverse, inclusive workforce where people feel valued and heard, Napa says, is essential for organizations to thrive in today’s globalized world and competitive landscape. Those companies that take the time to invest in diversity and empower people from all walks of life will be poised to gain a powerful competitive advantage and channel greater innovation.
