Examining how cultivating diversity and inclusion can lead to more successful outcomes

There is a gap in understanding the state of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in Arizona. There is an increased demand for educational resources, focusing on opportunities for individuals and organizations to get involved in DEI initiatives on a local level. In that vein, STN created Community Collaborative.

The Community Collaborative explores what it means to have an equitable community. In each episode, leaders from prominent Greater Phoenix organizations share ideas and best practices for creating a more equitable Arizona. 

Creating equity and ensuring equal opportunities fosters a positive environment, boosting satisfaction and commitment. 

Inclusive businesses expand their customer base by understanding diverse needs, driving new markets and revenue streams, while also gaining valuable insights for effective marketing. 

Diversity, equity, and inclusion significantly influence a business’s profitability. Diverse teams offer varied perspectives, leading to enhanced problem-solving and decision-making. 

Prioritizing diversity enhances brand image, attracts talent and customer loyalty, and ultimately boosts sales and overall profitability.

With each episode, we increase collaboration within the DEI space and amplify data to create change. We also provide educational resources for companies looking to start or improve their DEI initiatives.

75% of organizations with frontline, decision-making teams reflecting a diverse and inclusive culture will exceed their financial targets.
