Demographic development, globalisation, changing values, declining employment figures, a growing proportion of working women, more people with a migration background. All of this brings a clear advantage for companies, because it is proven that diverse teams increase employee retention and satisfaction, improve teamwork or enhance creativity and innovation as mixed-age and multicultural teams bring a broader range of knowledge, skills and new perspectives to the organisation.

But what kind of skills do you need as a leader and how do you implement inclusion on a daily basis? Furkan Karayel, autor of the book Inclusive Intelligence, multi award-winning diversity and inclusion speaker and founder of says „Diversity is you. Because you are unique. Inclusion is accepting you. Because you matter.“ It further says in her book that „in a workplace, diversity means building balanced harmony with a range of gender, ethnicity, culture, age, experience, preference, abilities, status, religion, socio-economic backgrounds and thoughts. Inclusion is accepting everyone as a unique and valued element of this harmony.“
