Why Inclusion is Good for Business Facilitated by anu jain, Principle Consultant of Inclusant and Executive Director, Gender Equity Commision, Office of the Mayor William Peduto Why Inclusion is Good for Business Many organizations struggle to achieve the diverse and inclusive environment that they desire, given historical exclusion and inequities in U.S. society. Other obstacles include misconceptions about what inclusion really is and what it costs. As with any other successful initiatives, inclusion efforts have to be high quality, well strategized, and sustained over time, which may well require a high investment in terms of time and resources. And there are high returns on such investment: inclusion is not only the right thing to do, but it is also profitable when done with intentionality and suitable information. Learn about many reasons why inclusion is good for the bottom line, which means ignoring it will cost too much for any business, organization, community— and all of us, in the long term.
