Diversity and inclusion has never been more critical in the workplace than it is right now, and businesses are reviewing their internal processes to see what they can do better. Many companies have released corporate statements on workplace diversity, and inclusion requires more than a simple declaration. There is real work that needs to be done to improve organizations' diversity and inclusion.
