Advancing Diversity & Inclusion Efforts in Your Organization

Summary

Diversity is not something new to the agricultural industry. Incredible advancements to the industry and mankind contributed by diverse scientists George Washington Carver and Evangelina Villegas are held with the highest regard. Yet in a recent study completed by AgCareers.com, only 53% of participating agricultural organizations indicated that their recruiting strategies are aimed at increasing the diversity represented in their organization. While this is not a problem, per se, diversity is important in every industry and in order for the best and brightest minds to succeed, attention should be paid to diversity and inclusion efforts.
