These 5 Atlanta Companies Know D&I Is Serious Business
“Cox lives by the maxim: If you take care of the employees, the employees will take care of the company,” said Rock Anderson, Cox Automotive’s executive VP & chief people officer.
D&I has been a huge topic of conversation in the media, specifically as it relates to the tech industry over the last several years. I assume everyone must know this term — but I am often asked, what is D&I?
It stands for diversity and inclusion. Emphasis on inclusion, which is the #majorkey — with the current climate of racial sensitivity, D&I work is more vital than ever. There’s so much fresh and highly sought talent graduating and entering the workforce in Atlanta — the catch is providing a culture that makes them want to stay. Diversity is merely the range of demographics aloud in the building, inclusion is the feeling you belong there. Instead of focusing on the problems related to D&I, we need to implement solutions.
