Diversity & Inclusion:
Over the last decade, as economies became more global through international trade, companies began to embark on international markets in an effort to increase their sales of goods and services. As more minorities began to enter the corporate workforce, the demographics of this workforce began to change as well. In the beginning, minorities had to overcome obstacles to get certain jobs and were denied certain positions due to ill-placed perceptions of their capabilities. However, the value of a diverse workforce became more apparent as companies saw global sales become a growing percentage of their overall gross revenue.
Multinational companies began to look into their own employee base for assistance to do business in Asian countries. The need for employees who can speak an Asian language has grown, and bi-lingual Asian Pacific Americans now are more sought after in the workforce.
Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Series pushes the conversation on Diversity and Inclusion to develop best practices for recruiting, hiring, training and retaining diverse talents. We invite key industry leaders to participate in this collective conversation, and engage professionals so that they can contribute to the development of the D&I programs in their respective industries.
