Diversity and Inclusion Blog Series Description:
Have you ever thought you knew the answer until someone else shared a different perspective? In business, in school, and in life people are looking for the opportunity to create solutions, influence decisions, and solve problems. It’s a natural desire to prove yourself right or to be the one that made a difference. What’s more difficult is being open-minded, considering alternatives, and proactively seeking different perspectives. In this new “Diversity & Inclusion – Why it matters and how CBT is taking action” blog series, we will discuss diversity and inclusion’s importance and impact in the workplace as well as ways CBT is putting them into practice.

Diversity not only demonstrates an organization’s core values and approach to equality, but it also is proven to deliver improved company performance.

As you read through this article, consider ways you as an individual can make a difference, ways your company can make a difference, and how that can inspire others to do the same.

Diverse and inclusive hiring indicates that each step of the hiring process is driven by awareness: intentional language, a welcoming environment, open-minded interviewers and a fair, equitable rating process.
