Proper implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace can be challenging. It is important that companies have an implementation plan that they can stick to, to ensure that their initiatives are successful. Diversity managers should be cognizant of the common reasons why these initiatives fail so they can avoid them or correct these mistakes. It is also important for companies to study which diversity programs have had legitimate success in the past and work to implement those instead of common strategies that have been proven to fail. While many aspects of diversity implementation at a company may be voluntary, it is important to know the laws that govern diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the consequences that can result from failure in implementation.
