Diversity has become much of a hot topic these days, and for good reason. It is important to understand how this affects organizations and businesses. However, diversity is not just about gender. It is also about age, professional expertise and experience, ethnicity, educational background, regional provenance, or even family background. The “diversity recipe” is also about inclusivity—persons with disabilities, indigenous people, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and people of different faiths—so that we are able to truly represent the population, and be sensitive and considerate of the variety of options we offer to meet their needs, wants, and dreams in terms of service or product.
