Is it important for company leaders/decision makers to lead diversity and inclusion initiatives?
YES! Research shows that companies who’s top leaders/decision makers lead diversity and inclusion initiatives they are more successful. The reason is because they are the people that other employees follow. Does this mean that it has to be the leaders/decision makers idea? NO. But if it is an employee’s idea regardless of rank, they need to get the buy in of a leader/decision maker to make sure change happens.
