We’ve seen more focus on the importance of diversity in the workplace. Diversity is becoming a more mainstream conversation nationally, but not without some controversy. So what can we be thinking about as we look to lead organizations through these challenges?
In a recent a workshop I attended on strategy and innovation, a professor shared a quote:
“If only the organization knew what it already knows.”
It stuck with me. I couldn’t help but think about it from our TD Ameritrade perspective. We have thousands of Associates and advisor clients serving millions of investors. That’s a treasure trove of potential solutions to problems, ideas for new programs and services, and other collective knowledge we have within reach. But, without the right environment and attitudes, only a fraction will be uncovered.
