Diversity is strength. What is the point of diversity if we’re not creating opportunities for everyone to benefit?
Ruth Dorsainville has worked with more than 30,000 people from around the world, for the past 18 years. Based on extensive research and one on one interviews with the CEOs of Fortune 100 companies, Ruth Dorsainville has created a step-by-step blueprint that anyone can use to create a legacy diversity and inclusion organization.
The first step to diversity and inclusion is to have an understanding of what it actually means. Diversity, in a nutshell, is the word we use to describe something that is made up of many different parts, which are often similar but also different from one another. Inclusion refers to the act or process of including all parts within a group or system. There are many benefits that can be seen through engaging in diversity and inclusion practices. More diverse teams with inclusive practices make better decisions than less diverse teams, because they have members with more varied backgrounds and experiences when it comes to seeing problems from multiple perspectives. This leads to more innovative problem-solving strategies, as well as higher levels of creativity and innovation in general for all team members involved.
Companies can benefit from diversity and inclusion initiatives in other ways as well. They can improve the employee experience, increase employee satisfaction, lower employee turnover rates, and even improve ethical decision-making among employees at all levels of the company.
These success stories demonstrate the power that comes from programs focused on diversity and inclusion. From a legal standpoint, diversity and inclusion programs can help companies stay in compliance with anti-discrimination laws and provide protection to companies when defending against lawsuits. While these programs are not 100% foolproof, they do deter discrimination within the workplace by encouraging and reinforcing fairness practices.
A comprehensive resource for diversity and inclusion, this Diversity & Inclusion book is designed to provide information on all aspects of diversity and inclusion. It includes statistics related to current issues within the workplace such as gender inequality, racial discrimination, and more.

There is so much more! Diversity initiatives are sometimes seen to be geared towards a specific demographic or group of individuals, such as women or people of color. However, this is not always the case. The #MeToo movement showed support for a variety of women across many industries and under many different scenarios, proving that diversity initiatives are not just for specific groups of people. Organizations can also benefit from diversity initiatives by creating an inclusive workplace culture within their organization where everyone is valued for their ideas and contributions rather than just their demographic characteristics.
