We already know there is a cost to not diversifying their business.

It’s been statistically reported and proven over and over again, that businesses are 35% more likely to be out-performed and out-sold by businesses competitors of their business is not diverse.

Consumers are more likely to engage with businesses and often pay more to brands and businesses who show up and engage with them and will disengage with those that don’t.

Not only is including diversity the right thing do, but diversity is good for and can completely transform businesses.
