Diversity at work can help attract talent, increase creativity to find solutions and improve the understanding of business needs amongst other things according to the experts Kossek and Lobel. But do we value Diversity at work?
At Hewlett Packard while I was the Diversity lead for the Personal Systems Business at European level, I started to investigate the attitude of young men and women towards Gender Diversity.
I wrote an article with Antonio Nuñez Partido and Belén Urosa of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas that was published in the 12th IAJBS Forum de Beirut in 2006. The research was carried out through a questionnaire of 25 items around Diversity that was answered by 214 university students.
