Workplace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: The Competitive Advantage
Vibrant Pittsburgh is Making Workplaces Attractive for Diverse Talent
Vibrant Pittsburgh provides the DEI expertise and leadership to our region’s organizations to support future-forward workplaces where people from all backgrounds thrive. We’re opening minds and doors to a wide range of talent.
There are several advantages to investment in diversity, equity, and inclusion at your organization:
- Organizations that are not cultivating diverse, equitable, and inclusive cultures miss out on opportunities to maximize the potential of their employees. Diverse teams are more imaginative and make better judgments, and diverse businesses provide higher shareholder returns.
- When a team has at least one member who reflects the target customer’s gender, color, age, sexual orientation, or culture, they are far more likely to understand them.
- Those with more diverse management produced 38% more revenue on average than companies with less diversity. This might be due to the fact that diversity of gender, place of origin, career route, and industry background are all strongly linked to creativity.
- Organizations with higher gender and ethnic diversity outperform their less diverse counterparts by 15% and 35%, respectively.
