Diverse organizations out-think, out-innovate and out-perform a homogenous organization almost every time. Study after study confirms that racially and ethnically diverse teams improve an organization’s bottom line. A 2015 McKinsey report of 366 public companies showed that those with the most ethnically and racially diverse management were 35% more likely to have above-average financial returns for their industries. Those at the top for gender diversity were 15% more likely to out-perform.

What accounts for these results?

Diverse teams are smarter. Multiple studies show that ethnically diverse groups are more objective in their decision-making and process facts more carefully. Other research finds that because they avoid conformity, culturally diverse teams are more innovative. Companies with culturally diverse leadership are more likely to develop new products.

Diverse teams connect better with customers. When an organization’s workforce and leadership represent the customer base, the company will naturally serve customer interests more effectively. A racially diverse workforce has been positively associated with more customers, increased sales revenue, greater relative profits and greater market share.

Does your company’s diversity match your customers? If not, you have a bigger problem brewing than you know.

Low visibility, an inadequate pipeline and company culture can all cause lack of diversity. Are you adapting and developing your pipeline to achieve the diversity that will help your organization reach its highest potential?
