"When a client comes to me and says, 'We have a focus on diversity,' my first question is, 'Why?' " Lowisz said in a recent diversity piece in Crain's Detroit Business. " 'Is it a mandate from the top because it makes you feel better, or does it actually make sense for your business?' "
Diversity is not about doing the right thing or creating set-asides, Lowisz said. It's about building a business filled with the best and brightest talent so your firm can compete globally.
Diverse teams, Lowsiz told Crain's, come from various backgrounds and have the ability to come up with more creative solutions, new ideas, and new products than non-diverse teams.
