WHY

FRANCHISE D&I SOLUTIONS? 

THE Diversity Business Case:

According to the 2020 U.S. Census, the U.S. will be a 'Minority/Majority' nation in the 2040s. As a result, leveraging Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be a 'core competency' and 'critical success factor' for people to better navigate and co-exist in an increasingly diverse society and world. Those who will be successful will ensure they are not on the wrong side of the DEI paradigm shift.

THE Problem: Diversity case studY

October 31, 2022: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas stated during an oral argument on a case involving affirmative action that he has 'no clue what diversity means'. When one of the Justices in the highest court in the land is clueless about diversity, at a time when the world is becoming more and more diverse, education and commitment around diversity is needed at all levels and in all corners of our in society!
