Turning Workplace Diversity Goals Into Reality
NEW YORK: Workplace diversity and inclusion have become rallying cries in the wake of racial justice movements like Black Lives Matter. U.S. corporations are responding with commitments to create a workforce that looks more like America.
But recognizing and promoting the talent of women and ethnic minorities to fill boardrooms and executive suites is a long-term challenge.
Columbia University professor Dr. Art Langer has been nurturing talent for years through his nonprofit Workforce Opportunity Services (https://www.wforce.org/).
Langer, who credits an art teacher for showing him the way out of his rough childhood neighborhood in the Bronx, New York, told Reuters in an interview how corporate America can translate lofty diversity goals into reality.
