How to Ensure that Your Business Has an Inclusive and Supportive Environment
It’s 2023, and DEI issues have been on the forefront for several years now. You would think organizations would have successfully implemented an inclusive and equitable environment for all employees, right?
Yet, in many sectors in the workplace, there is still staggering inequality. In fact, racism has increased in technology from 18% of people of color reporting discrimination in 2021 to 24% in 2022.
Among those who face discrimination are those with a disability or mental health condition, who are not given the same support and opportunities as their coworkers.
In the past years, many companies have created policies or taken measures they thought would address DEI issues. Yet, many of these were not enforced, not implemented properly, or not tested to see if they were actually benefiting those facing discrimination.
Now, companies need to take steps to improve implementation and create an equitable environment for all.
