Research from McKinsey & Company and New York’s Center for Talent Innovation (CTI) shows that companies focused on diversity in the workplace are more profitable than homogenous companies. “Two-dimensional diversity,” a metric coined by CTI, refers to inherent qualities like gender, age, and race. Their research, spanning more than 40 case studies and 1,800 employee surveys, shows that publicly-traded companies with 2-D diversity were more likely to have expanded their market shares and captured new markets in the last twelve months.
