Winning Talent Together: Diversity in the Workplace

Pittsburgh companies are dedicating time and resources to hiring a more diverse workforce. However, without an inclusive working environment, retention of diverse employees is low. 

According to research, companies with diverse teams:
Have 19% higher revenue (reported by Boston Consulting Group)
Outperform industry norms by 35% (as found by McKinsey's research)
Are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market (according to Josh Bersin)
Are 70% more likely to capture a new market (statistic by Harvard Business Review)
Considering these statistics, what can we do as a region to promote inclusion and retention?

Join in our initiative with other companies who are committed to creating a more inclusive workforce. As part of this round table discussion, you will develop actionable ideas for promoting inclusion and diversity in the workplace such as:

Establishing mentorship for underrepresented groups
Starting employee resource groups
Interviewing your diverse employees
Providing monthly professional development based on employee feedback
Setting up networking and professional development events across organizations to bring employees from underrepresented groups together
Embedding D&I throughout the employee experience to improve inclusion, growth, and trust
By joining in with other innovative, forward thinking Pittsburgh companies, you will be paving the way with strategies that put inclusion, and therefore diversity and equity, at the center of our organizations.
