Includingto value diversity
Many approaches on Diversity and Inclusion focus on statistics, quota and have not had the desired effects yet, despite the changes of law and policies. The key to unblock this dilemma is in you. Inclusion is a daily practice and a conscious choice, just like brushing your teeth or eating.

I work as a senior associate with Pluribus Europe a Global Diversity & Inclusion specialist. We help organizations, teams and managers to create a culture of connectedness where the potential and differences of all employees are valued and respected. Many organizations recognize that the basis of their performance lies in the strength and quality of their people. More and more, formal efforts are being made to develop a strategic focus on diversity management. For international companies spread across geographical areas with a large number of cultures, it is possible to maximize this de facto diversity by unlocking the human potential in their organizations.
Only optimizing the diversity of employees without an important change in thinking, attitudes and behavior is not sustainable. High-quality teams derive strength from mutual understanding, respect and shared goals that is enhanced through inclusion. The richness of diversity can only be optimized by creating a culture of inclusion. That inclusive culture starts with you.
