Diversity &
Inclusion

The moral, legal and economic imperative
in the workplace culture

Accelerating social progress with
a just and fair
sense of belonging

There is a groundswell of efforts aimed at increasing the inclusive and diverse character of innovation. This comes as technology and automation advance, and the returns to technologically enabled activities grow at an exceptional rate relative to traditional sectors. Non-profits just like CINDE, thought-leading MNCs in Costa Rica and the government are working to bring more of society into these activities in an effort to promote inclusive, equitable growth.

Research also suggests well-managed diverse teams significantly outperform homogenous ones over time, driving profitability, innovation, decision-making, and employee engagement.
