Diverse workplaces are the norm in many companies. However, not all workplaces make the most of this diversity by being inclusive. The benefits of inclusion are varied, from happier and more secure colleagues to higher-quality work and creative output. Leaders at the supervisory level play a vital role in building an inclusive environment that assures all employees that their contributions will be heard and valued.
To progress to higher leadership levels, supervisory leaders must demonstrate an understanding of the arguments for inclusion and the ability to build an inclusive environment.
