AiVi Nguyen Writes “10 Things I Know About Creating a Truly Diverse Workplace” for the Worcester Business Journal
AiVi Nguyen created a list of top 10 to-dos in creating a truly diverse workplace. Below are just a few:
10) Understand why it’s important. Inclusion is not just the right thing to do, it’s a strategic business move. The most successful businesses are the ones with a workforce with different experiences and skill-sets.
9) Promote open positions to minority affinity groups. You first need diverse job applicants. Market directly to them.
8) Cultivate local young talent. Worcester kids tend to grow up to be Worcester adults. Get in front of local diverse kids early and support their education and development.
7) Assess applicants holistically. If your job requirements are things white men are more likely to have accomplished, only white men will qualify. Stop factoring in pedigree, because I bet your best employees were not at the top of their class.
