Understanding cultural diversity in workplaces has never been more of an imperative. But in recent years, increased awareness around social exclusions faced by underrepresented people has brought equity to the forefront of inclusion creating a cost factor of inequity. This is not just a financial impact, but also a human capital one. Leaders must understand the cost of inequity increases the risk of losing their most critical resource—human capital.
