Inclusion in the workplace is now a universal expectation. LGBT+ straight millennial and Gen-Z employees care deeply about inclusion and are more likely to advocate for it than previous generations

It goes without saying now that diversity and inclusion (D&I) have multifold benefits for businesses across the board – it is of little wonder that building an inclusive culture in organizations has been part of boardroom conversations for quite some time now. Right from policies and infrastructure to support groups and appointed grievance officers, organisations are taking far-reaching measures to create a truly inclusive workplace. Despite the work, inclusion today continues to remain on paper and does not fully reflect on ground.

Today’s workforce has undergone a fundamental, generational shift in the environment, the culture and even how it interacts universally. It is radically diverse and far more likely to include minority groups than in the past. The composition of the modern workforce is continually evolving, and its multifaceted nature presents challenges to how organisational cultures can adapt.
