Diversity is Correlated with Business Performance

Many people think that if you can build a case on global diversity, things will shift and improve.  That’s not necessarily true.  The reality is that a lot more work needs to be done.

In the interview below with McKinsey’s Rik Kirkland, Harvard Kennedy School professor of public policy Iris Bohnet talks about what is working—and what is not—when it comes to building a more equitable workplace. An edited version of her remarks follows.

Here’s a snippet on one of Kirkland’s remarks relative to diversity and inclusion:

Based on that evidence, maybe we shouldn’t be quite as shocked that diversity training doesn’t have the impact that we were hoping it could have. Because even though you and I might agree now that we will be inclusive tomorrow, it is hard to follow through on those virtuous intentions.

The World According to John Yunker

According to web language and globalization expert John Yunker, “we share this world with 7.4 billion other people across more than 200 countries speaking more than 6,000 languages.”  In his, “If the world were 100 people,” report, he takes a look at the world by representing all 7.4 billion people as just 100 people.  The analysis helps you determine what languages you should support on your website.

When You Are Good at What You Do, You Will Get Recognized Globally

Female drummers in bands in Singapore are taking the world by storm. Even though the profession is considered a thankless job, their role as the rhythmic backbone of a unit can be overshadowed by the presence of guitar wizardry or the antics of vocalists.  It’s also no secret that the profession is largely male-dominated yet in the article below, the author speaks to some of the talented women about their experience as active drummers in Singapore.

One drummer said this:

When you are really good at what you do, you will get recognized [globally], no matter your gender.

I would like to think everyone can overcome and achieve great things with their skills and attitude. Being girls doesn’t necessary put us in disadvantage. In fact, sometimes, it’s probably easier to attract attention when you’re a girl.

3 Reasons to Support Nigerian Women in Agriculture

Supporting the food sector, agro-allied businesses and specifically women farmers, boosts the national economy, increases national food supply and exports, empowers women and provides healthier food choices for our families.

In Nigeria, they prefer to buy locally; thereby, enhancing their food security and local consumption.  Also by supporting the local female farmers in Nigeria, we are directly:

  1. Powering entrepreneurial investment and exports.
  2. Supporting women-owned businesses.
  3. Helping to put money back into her [a woman’s] household that will feed her children.

As the article below states:

Dried fruits and foods such as plaintain chips can be processed in different ways and sold for economic gains for the farmer, the processor, the exporter and the nation as a whole. All of these are more than sufficient reasons why women should be aggressively and deliberately positioned for economic empowerment.
