Diversity initiatives are essential within all organizations, and it is important that everyone understands how they can get involved.
“Some folks believe that diversity initiatives aren’t for them,” writes Kaela Sosa in the March/April issue of CPA Voice. “They think diversity only includes inherent traits such as race, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”
These common misconceptions can be detrimental to personal and workplace growth. Diversity is not one-dimensional and both inherent and acquired diversity are important drivers of business success, says Sosa.
“Acquired traits like education, veteran status, socioeconomic class, places lived, and age are also dimensions of diversity,” she writes. “And eventually, all of us will assume one or more of these identities. Diversity really does include everyone.”
