Why diversity is good for business

Learn how diversity and inclusion lead to better business results.

By Paul Studebaker, Control

Look around you. Traditionally a white male dominated world, the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), in general, and the process automation profession in particular are seeing increased participation by people of a variety of shapes, colors and inclinations. There are good reasons to nurture this trend toward diversity, and to help build inclusive work environments to take full advantage of it.

"Diversity is the mix, inclusion means allowing them to work well together," said Nikki Bishop, director, global turnaround program, Emerson Process Management. Bishop joined Sara Hough, automation engineer Shell, and Brian Atkinson, consultant, industry solutions group, Emerson, to present the session, "Closing the Gap: Methods for Leveraging the Power of Diversity in a Technical World" at the Emerson Global Users Exchange 2015 this week in Denver.
