Emphasizes cooperative attributes

Expressions that emphasize cooperative, compassionate or supportive characteristics reinforce an inclusive culture. They describe an environment where cooperation, passion, and mutual respect count. Many people, especially women and generation Z, are socialized to cooperation and mutual support. This is how they prefer to work.

Use more such wording and an inclusive culture starts to build or is reinforced.

Emphasizes value of diversity, equity and inclusion

People, be it as customers or as employees, perceive Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the business world as important. 38% of consumers, in general, are more likely to trust brands that do well with showing diversity in their ads. This percentage is even higher among specific consumer groups including Latinx+ (85%), People of Color (79%), Asian/Pacific Islander (79%), LGBTQ (85%), millennial (77%), and teen (76%) consumers. (Study) With regard to employer branding, generation Z is very clear about this: 83% of the surveyees in a Monster study said that a company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is important when choosing an employer.

Thus, such language is attractive to many people and can attract them to your brand.

Make sure that you communicate your Diversity, Equity and Inclusion goals while staying authentic and truthful. (Diversity washing also happens and can quickly backfire.)
