Organizations today are faced with ever evolving, ever more demanding and diverse customers.  How can your organization keep up with and even gain competitive advantage over your competition for those customers?
Studies from leading research firms such as the Harvard Business Review, Boston Consulting Group, McKenzie, and Clear Company as well as notable figures such as Dianne Crampton of the United Nations recognized TIGERS series to former Soviet Leader Mikael Gorbachov to Producer Director Noman Lear point to one real answer to this question – diversity in your employees.  But is diversity really the solution for your organization? What are the benefits? How can you tell if your organization could benefit from diversity efforts?
