Workplace diversity is about appreciating differences and adapting work practices to create an inclusive environment in which diverse skills, perspectives and backgrounds are valued.

 

Developing a Diversity Program at your Organization

Below are some resources to assist you in developing a diversity program at your organization by reviewing why diversity is important, links to guides that will help you begin the research, and a template to help you compare your recruitment area by race and gender, per census area. Additionally, we have provided resources linking to heritage guides, a multicultural calendar and monthly diversity celebration topic areas. We hope you find this toolkit helpful and look forward to hearing your feedback by emailing to president@myshra.org

Why is Diversity Important?

Workplace diversity is about appreciating differences and adapting work practices to create an inclusive environment in which diverse skills, perspectives and backgrounds are valued.

By bringing together our different backgrounds, skills, and experiences, businesses are better able to mold the type of innovative and creative solutions needed to succeed in an increasingly competitive economy.
