Dialogues, Advocates Key in Creating Diverse Company Culture
“If diversity issues are thought of as a standalone rather than a culture issue, we know there’s a problem. It can’t be women verses men—it has to be inclusive,” she said.
Denise Leleux, a member of the group’s advisory board, agreed, and said the group has been working with companies that have shown strong examples of promoting a company culture that supports diversity.
“Inclusion should be the program, and diversity should be the result,” she said.
