This piece explores the importance of assessing a job candidate's commitment to diversity and inclusion. Companies are recognizing that diversity and inclusion brings out an organization's best creative thinking and problem solving potential. To ensure candidates value inclusiveness, it is essential to ask and observe how they view and approach cultural differences. Strategies to evaluate a person's commitment to this cause involve making sure to ask culturally aware questions in the interview process, looking for information on how past actions have been supportive of diversity, as well as gauging body language and attitude cues. Ultimately, a strong candidate will demonstrate comfort in discussing these issues and will express an understanding of how diversity and inclusion shape the workplace environment.
