Deloitte review | January |2018
Deloitte's research identifies a very basic formula: Diversity + Inclusion = better business outcomes. Simply put, diversity without inclusion is worth less than when the two are combined. This insight is gaining traction, helping to position diversity and inclusion as separate concepts.
Indeed, two-thirds of the 10,000 leaders surveyed as part of Deloitte's 2017 Global Human Capital Trends report cited, diversity and inclusion as ''important'' or ''very important'' to business.
At its highest point, inclusion is expressed as feeling "confident and inspired."
