The McKinsey & Company report, Diversity Matters, looked at financial results composing of top management and boards to conclude “…companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have financial returns above national industry medians and 15% more for gender diversity.” The report also states, “The unequal performance of companies in the same industry and the same country implies that diversity is a competitive differentiator shifting market share toward more diverse companies.”
If you’re not sure where to start to be more diversified and want to learn more, consider going beyond the boardroom by joining an outreach group to help women and minorities through mentoring programs and internships. Another option is to volunteer on a community board to help minorities and encourage your employees to do the same.
