SDBN BUZZ Podcast: What Can Diversity and Inclusion Do for Your Business?


Diverse teams have been shown to be more innovative. But diversity alone is not sufficient. Team members need to feel included in whatever task is at hand. Otherwise, employee engagement suffers.

Denise Pirrotti Hummel is the CEO of Lead Inclusively. She joined us on this podcast to talk about the benefits of diversity and inclusion, the difference between the two and ways to bring those “next practices” into your company culture through changes in leadership behaviors.

Even before you get to innovation, an inclusive culture has an impact on your ability to attract and retain top talent.

We also talked about:

  • Challenges for underrepresented groups
  • The 3 Rs at the intersection of inclusion and innovation
  • Nudge messaging to reinforce inclusive leadership behaviors
