The demand for a better understanding of diversity and inclusion is high and will continue to grow. A lack of diversity and inclusion is one of the top risk factors for workplace harassment, according to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. We see it in the racial and ethnic identities, cultural backgrounds, ages, skill sets, languages, and other identifying markers that employees possess.
