What does innovate mean? According to the Webster’s Dictionary, innovate means “To make changes: To do something in a new way: To effect a change in.”
Diversity has been a topic of conversation for decades with the main impetus being of “doing the right thing.” Yet, Innovate Diversity™ finds that business leaders and representatives in this field, who are speaking about diversity as a moral obligation, are not delivering results. Based on connotative linguistics, diversity implies a good or bad decision and sparks emotion not based on business prudency.
Innovate Diversity™ asserts that business leaders should move away from the moral basis to one where diversity denotes economic strength based on diversification of its workforce, much like the strength of every sound investment portfolio is diversification of assets. People of all backgrounds, cultures, races, and perspectives are a company’s valued investment for its future gains. Leaning into diversification is an innovative business strategy.
