“We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges” – Tim Berners-Lee
What does Diversity in workplace mean? How successful organizations embrace diversity and inclusion to strengthen their culture and reach higher success?
In this fast-pacing market, having and being able to manage diversity and inclusion in the workplace can add significant value to organizations. One of the great advantages is that you can tackle a problem from a rich variety of viewpoints while still having a united workforce regardless of their differences in terms of gender, nationality, race, age, education background, etc.
Therefore, we proudly introduce to you the topic of this breakfast seminar – “Inclusion and the benefit of diversity at work. How it works in Vietnam?”, co-hosted by AmCham HR Committee and EuroCham HR & Training Committee.
