Diversity is win- win

Today I ran into an interesting article from Women’s Agenda which I thought it is worth to share it here as well. It is an interesting read by Angela Priestley highlighting the benefits of gender equity to men and the importance of engaging men in gender equity discussions. According to this article, it is very important to realise that gender equity is a win-win situation and we shouldn’t do it only because it is the right thing to do but because it benefits everyone regardless of gender. You can read the full article here

Although this beatiful article has focused mainly on gender equity, the concept covers a wider spectrum which is diversity. It is not only minorities and under represented groups which benefit from encouraging diversity in the workplaces but it is for the interest of everyone. And what are the benefits: motivation, happiness, productivity and innovation to name a few.
