A focus on three aspects: A business case for diversity; some key barriers limiting workplace diversity; ways in which we can foster a diverse workplace. The need to ensure that one's workplace is a meeting ground for differing and diverse ideas, opinions and perspectives. Research on what diversity can accomplish. The need for a diverse workforce to stay relevant. The need to be innovative. Some real-world examples. Organizational fit and what that means. A subtle form of discrimination. Ways in which organizations can foster a diverse work force: leadership, action and cultural alignment. A brief discussion of each. A significant and meaningful finding. A call to the audience to help break down walls that prevent people from practising in their trained profession.
