Diverse organizations are not necessarily inclusive and inclusive organizations are not necessarily diverse.
Organizations that focus on both diversity and inclusion have a competitive advantage in the work marketplace.
McKinsey’s latest report, Diversity Wins: How Inclusion Matters reaffirms the strong case for both gender diversity and ethnic and cultural diversity in corporate leadership—and shows that this business case continues to strengthen. The most diverse companies are now more likely than ever to outperform less diverse peers on profitability.
This analysis finds that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 25 percent more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the fourth quartile—up from 21 percent in 2017.
According to a Glassdoor survey, two-thirds of job applicants consider diversity to be an important factor in deciding where they want to work, making diversity and inclusion a core recruitment and retention driver.

Racial Wealth Gap Simulation
In this simulation, a partnership with Bread for the World, participants learn how federal policies created structural inequalities and how these policies increase hunger and poverty in communities of color.
The simulation guides participants to an understanding of the causes of a racial wealth gap in the United States and why racial equity is so important to ending hunger and poverty in the United States. The hope is that participants, in becoming more aware of structural inequality, can support policies that undo and/or reduce disparities.
Since the simulation emphasizes the importance of racial equity, it can be a helpful companion tool for churches, organizations, agencies, schools, and communities that have begun working on race and want to learn more about the role that public policy has had, over time, in creating structural divides based on race.
