Fhuair mi post a leughadh air Iomadachd le caraid ùr dhomh, JD Walton. J.D. has launched a blog that markets to Blacks in Business. He's an American success story and wants to share his experience with others.
Thug e orm mo dhùsgadh cho mòr is gun robh mi bha airson sgrìobhadh mu mo smuaintean air iomadachd. Dè a tha aig iomadachd ri dhèanamh ri Margaidheachd is Automation? Dè a tha e a ’buntainn ri Doug, an duine geal reamhar 38-bliadhna seo? A h-uile dad! Tha an dùthaich agus an saoghal againn a ’fàs tòrr nas eadar-mheasgte a h-uile latha. Tha an eadar-lìn a ’fàs na fhìor phoit leaghaidh leis gu bheil ruigsinneachd ruigsinneach agus bathar-cruaidh a’ tighinn chun a ’mhòrshluaigh.
You must respect and speak to all races, creeds and genders if you wish to be successful. If your business wishes to grow, then your company must be diverse as well. It's impossible to serve a sector of the market effectively if you don't have input from that sector of the market.
Some folks look internally on diversity programs and utilize it as their excuse for not being promoted or speak to someone else becoming promoted prematurely. I believe this to be short-sighted and perhaps a little ignorant. Basing a promotion on someone's race, gender, etc. can and will open opportunities to the business as well as the individual.
Here's the million dollar question… when your company grows successfully by actively promoting minorities and females, new opportunities will come to everyone within that company. It's the chicken or the egg. Perhaps you never would have had the opportunity to get promoted without having that diverse workplace in the first place!
