Argument 1 – (from the diversity thesis)

The need to make a commitment to encouraging diversity is paramount in today's business world. Executive women leadership can help corporations at the board level with success, find creative ways for face challenges, and spot talent within and outside the corporation while making the boardroom more innovative. Unfortunately, business women do not possess equal access to leadership. They face complexities not encountered by business men because of continuing uncertainties about their ability to lead. Requiring a diverse boardroom is a smart and practical way of bringing a different perspective and most assuredly value to the workplace. If every corporate board had at least one female board director, imagine the creativity and respect that would transpire. Women are working longer hours and the days of the "typical" stay at home mom are now becoming the stay at home dad. Business women have their sights on achieving an executive leadership position at the top of any corporation. Businesses must realize that there is something missing with boards being presided, managed and directed by all white males. In today's society, the word is inclusion, not exclusion, and it is robbing companies and society of talent and perspective that would benefit any firm by having the other half of the working population in the room.

Valuing diversity is the philosophy at Life Technologies, says Diversity and Inclusion Leader Ronita Griffin. The company doesn't stop at recruiting a varied workforce, but engages employees as diversity champions who act as mentors internally and as company ambassadors externally, at community diversity events. Life Technologies also trains its workforce in inclusion, which Griffin describes as "activating, respecting, leveraging, and enabling differences—learning how to recognize and take advantage of the rich diversity in our workforce." Although workplace diversity training can be met with resistance, it can be engaging if it is practical, and answers questions that people feel uncomfortable asking. LGBT diversity training sessions can be intriguing, says Snowdon. "People welcome the opportunity to get their questions answered about populations they don't know much about, like transgender people.
