‘Diversity Dividend’

January 20, 2015 Wall Street Journal story, “New Report Finds a ‘Diversity Dividend’ at Work.”

“Yet another study–this time by McKinsey–suggesting that more women and minorities in their upper ranks leads companies to better financial performance.

Apparently, it even trumps making more money! . . . So, I guess the claim that ‘business is always about the bottom line’ really means ‘business is always about the bottom line as long as it doesn’t make anyone at the top uncomfortable by making them work with people different from themselves.'”
