He encourages businesses, CEOs, HR personnel, managers, and supervisors to view Diversity in the Workplace as a business opportunity and not as a hindrance.
The definition of diversity in any given situation depends on who you ask. People define the concept based on their individual backgrounds and upbringing. As a result, these definitions are as numerous as the individuals defining it. In today's workplace, there needs to be a consistent definition to facilitate a harmonious work environment. The talk will assist an organization to define and develop a diversity policy based on a more thorough understanding of the many facets of diversity.
