Going Beyond Optical Diversity

Episode 236

Nikki Barua & Monica Marquez

Diversity has been a topic of discussion in the workplace for some time. But, do we really understand what hiring a diverse workforce means?

In this podcast, Monica Marquez explains the concept of optical diversity and why we need to move beyond it. Instead, we need to focus on cognitive diversity, which focuses on a mix of ethnicity, education, socioeconomic background, and more. Join Monica in this important discussion about how cognitive diversity can lead to more profits and the value diversity brings to Gen Z.

“Cognitive diversity is getting a mix of ethnicity with education, industries, upbringing, socio-economic backgrounds, geographic backgrounds, etc.”
