Diversity & Inclusion

Inclusive teams are smarter, higher-performing, and better for business.

Today’s most successful business leaders are moving beyond the politics of optics and diversity quotas. They are digging deeper to explore and cultivate true diversity as a critical component of their overall business strategy. And they are right to do so.

In addition to a US workforce that is rapidly growing more diverse with each passing year, study after study has shown that businesses with diverse _and_ inclusive work cultures routinely outperform non-inclusive companies by at least 15 percent. In fact, teams that embrace varied perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences not only generate higher revenues, they also attract better talent and overwhelmingly make better business decisions.

Through innovative trainings, workshops, and events, Mindhatch can help you nurture the emotional intelligence, collaborative skill sets, and cultural alignment you need to build a more equitable, inclusive, and successful workplace for everyone.

Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) refers to the initiatives an organization undertakes to build a work environment that is representative of traditionally underrepresented and marginalized groups and where everyone can do their best work. This ongoing effort to understand, unearth, and eliminate biases in business processes, systems, and interpersonal interactions, creates a more inclusive and equitable culture—one that is fair, welcomes and values difference, unlocks human potential, and allows businesses to thrive.

A study by Deloitte found that organizations with inclusive cultures are six times more likely to be innovative, six times more likely to anticipate change and respond effectively, and two times as likely to meet or surpass financial goals.

Featured Diversity and Inclusion Experience

White Privilege, Black Power

In this award-winning improv show, veteran performers Greg Tindale and Eva Lewis bound wide-eyed into the awkward questions and conversations we’ve all been tip-toeing around. They skillfully draw in audiences with an inquisitiveness that is seemingly unburdened by consequence or social propriety.

White Privilege, Black Power is a wickedly brilliant, unflinching exploration of difference that deftly disarms and educates viewers. The tailored, topic-driven performances cover a wide range of diversity issues and are a delightfully warm and engaging blend of courage, vulnerability, deep listening, levity, and profound empathy.

Cultivate a culture of inclusion. Build a culture of success.
