Diversity in genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities ensure heterogeneity in thoughts and impact the ideas that are generated. Gender identity and sexual orientation are integral and distinct for every individual. An organisation with deep-rooted values of equality, where every employee brings their whole selves to work, is a formula for better productivity and thereby business growth.â
