Diversity is good for business
At a time when global migration is at a record high, Prof. Momani, is examining the impact of immigration on the bottom lines of Canadian businesses. Her research shows that across all sectors in Canada, a 1% increase in workforce diversity corresponds to an average increase of 2.4% increase in revenue and a 0.5% increase in productivity. Momani explores how Canada is uniquely positioned to harness the benefits of immigration, a benefit that she has named Canada’s diversity dividend.
