Diversity In The Workplace Benefits: 5 Studies To Take To Your Boss

Recently, a recruiting manager at one of the world's largest companies told my team he was struggling to build a case for investing in more diversity-focused initiatives. His employees were questioning why their company would be spending money on diversity recruiting campaigns, including events, where women and people of color could hear why the company should be considered an inclusive place to work.

I was shocked. It's 2018. Homogeneous teams are not only bad for business and the economy as a whole, but diverse teams literally strengthen profits and innovation within workplaces.

Study after study has proven this.

Then it dawned on me that so many people are ill-equipped to make a case for the benefits of diversity in the workplace.

Don't worry. What follows is a quick guide for how to make the case. It includes research from Harvard, McKinsey, Gallup, and peer reviewed studies for you to lay out how your business could be reaching new levels of productivity, profitability, and long-term enhanced recruiting outcomes if diversity were to become a priority. Take this to your boss, skeptical colleagues, and even your uncle who argues that his male-dominated workplace doesn't need to change.

Her passion for technology and learning, coupled with S&P Global's willingness to train strong candidates created a new opportunity for this Analyst

Meredith Polson told us in the video below that she "constantly likes solving problems." Before being hired at S&P Global, she thought she had a big problem when she went up for a Senior Business Analyst role at S&P Global, but didn't have the technological experience the role required. Instead of turning Meredith down, they recognized her passion for learning and embraced her "problem" - and obvious enthusiasm around learning - up-skilling her up for the role.

Why team diversity is non-negotiable for this Data Science Leader

Sameena Shah oversees a lot of data from her perch as the Managing Director and Head of Data Science at S&P Global Ratings. But one fact stands out to her: for her team to be successful, it simply has to be diverse. And Sameena is backed up by studies like this one by S&P Global economists on how increased female participation in the U.S. workforce could unlock trillions of GDP growth. Sameena also points out recent stories of Artificial Intelligence products failing dramatically because diverse teams didn't work on them. Watch the video we put together with Sameena to hear more of her thoughts (1000% truths, rather) and learn more about the team she's building at S&P Global.

Her work as a Threat Intelligence Analyst is breaking down stereotypes

As a Threat Intelligence Analyst at S&P Global, Megan Kaczanowski spends her time vigilantly protecting systems from security breaches to ensure clients information stays safe. We talked to Megan about how she got her job, what it's like working for the Chief Security Information Officer (a CISO) who encouraged Megan to apply to her team, and how women in Cyber Security are building thriving environments. More importantly, she's helping build a culture where mermaids are never allowed at conferences (watch the video and you'll get it).
