What is the ROI of D&I
The business case for diversity and inclusion (D&I) exists. Business scholars and economists have shown that companies who embrace D&I ideas, values, and practices experience sustainable economic growth.
Diverse Companies retain talent
Inclusive Teams perform better
A diverse and inclusive company promotes an employee’s sense of belonging, as well as nurtures their emotional and physical well-being, improving performance. Deloitte University researchers, Christie Smith and Stephanie Turner, found that innovation, customer service, and team collaboration thrive when diverse companies promote inclusion.

Diverse companies out-innovate and out-perform other companies. “Employees at these companies are 45% likelier to report that their firm’s market share grew over the previous year and 70% likelier to report that the firm captured a new market” write Harvard Business Review authors, Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Melinda Marshall, and Laura Sherbin.
Sixty-seven percent of job seekers said that a diverse workforce is an important factor when evaluating companies and job offers.
