Diversity, Inclusion and Training: What Does This Look Like for the Workforce of the Future?

By Weldon H. Latham and James F. Botana
  • May 11, 2017

Corporate Diversity and Inclusion (“D&I”) programs have evolved from the concern of a few forward-thinking corporations over 25 years ago, to a mainstream business imperative today. Rapid U.S. population demographic changes are remaking the workforce. Companies large and small are already facing the reality of overwhelmingly diverse applicant pools. These dramatic changes present opportunities — to win the “war for talent” — and challenges — to maximize productivity of a multicultural workforce, while managing legal risks. This white paper will focus on: (I) how the modern workforce is changing; (II) benefits of diverse corporate workforces; (III) approaches and technology to lawfully manage enhanced D&I in the workforce; (IV) essential training approaches available now to ensure policies become actual practices; and (V) impact of Trump Administration on diverse workforce management.
