Workplace diversity is an important part of any company, and it can change the way you do business. Promoting diversity in the workplace leads to a creative and innovative environment where employees of all backgrounds can flourish. Here are a few ways you and other members of leadership in your company can create and promote a diverse work environment.

1. Diversity Training – Forbes reveals that giving employees diversity training makes them “more aware of what constitutes a diverse workplace.” This allows everyone to understand their responsibility to foster a good office environment. Throughout diversity training, you’re able to show each employee how they can strengthen the company.  

2. Company Culture and Policy – Make sure you create company standards that line up with current equal opportunity laws set by the government. Once you’ve come up with necessary policies, establish one team that’s responsible for implementation and familiarizing the entire office with the set procedures. Make it a goal for your company culture to reflect your workforce and overall company policy as well.
