The Importance of Diversity in the Workplace

Doug Crawford,

Hiring people of different races, genders, and sexual orientations brings several advantages to a workplace. Although there are laws that prevent discrimination based on those differences, it takes effort to diversify a company and cultivate a welcoming environment.
