OVERVIEW

Inclusion captures an all-embracing organizational ideology that secures the best effort and discretionary effort from employees.

Cultural diversity in the workplace refers to the individuals from different backgrounds and ethnicities that form your team or workforce. By embracing the diversity that has been established in the organization and then moving to inclusive initiatives, you, as a manager, will work to treat diverse others with respect and help them reach their potential and work at the top of their capabilities.

As an inclusive manager, you will ensure diverse others are part of the meaningful workflow that grows the company. You will understand why diversity matters in the workplace, and observe and take advantage of workers’ thought processes, life experiences, personalities, and innate gifts of character. In the process you will establish a thriving environment of problem solving and creativity.
