#InspiringInclusion Quotes for the workplace today

Updated: 4 days ago

It’s March 8, 2024, and it’s not just Friday, but it’s International Women’s Day. As a proud women owned business, this day is especially meaningful to us because it is a big reason and celebration of why we exist today. 

Inspiring inclusion and the importance of diversity to empower women in today’s workforce. 

Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE how far we’ve come, but there is still so much more to be done.

This year’s campaign theme calls for us to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and create environments where women are valued and respected. 

As we start the day, and continue to carry on with our actions, voices, and steps to inspire an inclusive future, here are some inclusivity quotes that will help set you off on the right foot for the weekend and the future ahead!

(No, no, we aren’t going to be another agency that makes a post about “How staffing agencies can support inclusivity”!).

Here are 10 inspirational quotes from leaders and key influencers that we hope not only inspires you to foster a better, stronger organization and culture, but put you in the best mood as you get ready for the weekend!

  1. “We have a very diverse environment and a very inclusive culture and those characteristics got us through the tough times. Diversity generated a better strategy, better risk management, better debates, and better outcomes.” — Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas

  2. “Diversity and inclusion, which are the real grounds for creativity, must remain at the center of what we do.” — Marco Bizzarri, CEO of Gucci

  3. “When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become wiser, more inclusive, and better as an organization.” — Pat Wadors (Chief Talent Officer at Procore Technologies)

  4. “Businesses perform better when you have diversity of view in your senior leadership positions. This is not just the right thing to do socially; it's the right thing to do for your business.” — Ruth Porat, Chief Financial Officer of Alphabet Inc. and Google

  5. “If we want to include everyone, we have to help everyone develop their talents and use their gifts for the good of the community. That’s what inclusion means– everyone contributes." — Melinda Gates

  6. “When we listen and celebrate what is common and different, we become a wiser, more inclusive, and better organization.” — Pat Wadors, Chief People Officer, Procore Technologies, Inc.

  7. “We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.” — Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States

  8. “We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their color.” — Maya Angelou

  9. “We know that diversity can sometimes be more uncomfortable because things are less familiar – but it gets the best results.” — Megan Smith, Chief Technology Officer of the United States and Assistant to President President Barack Obama

  10. “The things that make me different, are the things that make me, ME!” — Piglet

We hope that these quotes not only spark something in you and your organization to inspire inclusion beyond just today, but realize it’s not just an act that “must” be done, but “needs” to be done. Trust us when we say, it's not only good for business, it’s good for people.

Here’s to International Women’s Day and every day beyond today to #InspireInclusion. Let Nimble Technology Partners help you create the future of work that we are moving towards today by partnering with us today!
