Recognizing and recruiting talent regardless of individual difference is key to achieving diversity. However, ensuring a diverse workforce is not enough-organizations must be intentional in working to ensure that all team members feel welcome and valued. To be successful, organizations need to step back and look at the environment they are offering to potential candidates.
