When you think of diversity, equity, and inclusion, what employee categories come to mind? Race? Ethnicity? Gender? Religion? Sexuality?
Making your organization a safe space for all of those groups is key to a welcoming, compliant workplace, but DEI doesn’t stop there. Employees may belong to other, lesser-known DEI categories that have unique needs and that are underrepresented, but that you might not have even thought of when creating your DEI program.
Digging a little deeper as you create your DEI strategy ensures every employee feels valued and like their voice matters at your company. This makes employees feel safe, gives you a good corporate reputation, and can even help you avoid discrimination lawsuits, non-compliance fines, and other negative repercussions.
