Leaders need to recognize that diversifying a workforce does not automatically result in new hires feeling welcome, which suggests that inclusion should be a goal that organizations assign resources to. Moreover, organizations’ focus on equity needs to be based on the knowledge that not all employees or potential employees have access to the same resources, and should structure strategies and resources accordingly.
