Valuing Cultural Diversity
diversityIncorporating and leveraging diversity best practices
Research has shown that teams that incorporate diversity best practices achieve better results and a higher quality work product or service. According to Harvard Business School, the ability to leverage diversity is becoming an increasingly crucial leadership competency. Nowhere is that more true than in California, the only state where racial groups represent over 50% of the population. It is predicted that by 2058 the rest of the United States will mirror this demographic trend. Other groups will contribute to this growing diverse workforce; i.e., women, retirees, immigrants. Is your organization receptive to these population groups and the differences they bring to the workplace?

She has guided us through every phase of the program, gaining our trust and confidence. Because of Emily's expertise, sensitivity to our culture and its employees, and overriding commitment to our success, we have an excellent program."
