When you think of effective workplace diversity, you probably think of people of different genders, races, and cultures putting their diverse backgrounds to good use. You may also think about legal requirements and ensuring compliance. These thoughts are correct, but there’s another way to “think” about diversity.

Having a work environment with a diverse collection of thinkers will help your company push the envelope and grow in ways it normally wouldn’t.
