Your CSR Program As a Diversity and Inclusion Catalyst
Every week, it’s not unusual to see a headline about diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the workplace—whether it’s because a company is making strides in this area or they’re discovering an opportunity to do more. Business is increasingly focused on embracing D&I because they know that when they get it right, they’ll reap rewards like a better employer brand that attracts and retains high-performing people, improved performance and productivity, and even higher profits.
To celebrate Pride month, the rainbow flag will be prominently displayed throughout the month. Each color on the rainbow flag has a meaning: red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, blue for harmony, and violet for spirit. You will see the flag displayed not only by individuals to show their pride and support but also by businesses who value diversity in the community and the workplace.
