Building a Better Business through Diversity

Today, diversity is increasingly seen as critical to the success of any business. Businesses see harnessing diversity as a way of dealing with globalisation and economic challenges. More than just a consideration of gender, ethnic background and education, diversity now encompasses not only visible differences, but things that make people unique: life and work experiences, views, opinions and beliefs. Diversity in this wider sense is about capturing different perspectives and inputs; and encouraging productive collaboration, innovation and creativity.

Delivering these strategies requires leaders to adopt a broad and open attitude that encourages greater creativity and innovation, and positively affects strategic human resource management.
The aim of ACCA forum is to encourage lively discussion and explore the business case for diversity, as Malaysia itself has exhibit a widespread of diversity contributing to a great multiculturalism and uniqueness. Malaysia through its agencies is focussing on increasing the representation of women in the workforce and in decision making position.
