You must’ve heard, ‘Variety is the spice of life,’ right? That transcends to everything we do. We rarely want the same repetitive play of things. Take a look at our lifestyle. What excites us, inspires us and makes our emotions ebb and flow don’t come from just one source or one homogenous group. It’s not possible.
The same is true at our workplace. We want an eclectic mix of people. Diversity is defined as the important and interrelated dimensions of human identity such as race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, socio-economic status, nationality, citizenship, religion, sexual orientation, ability and age. These different threads weave communities together and makeup an exquisite fabric. Diversity is the cornerstone to human development. The United Nations celebrates World Diversity Day every year on May 21. Celebrated since 2002, the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development acknowledges the richness of the world’s cultures and harnesses the potential of culture, as a means of achieving prosperity, sustainable development and global peaceful coexistence.
Embracing cultural diversity is an important aspect of every organization. At Rahi Systems, we value this as one of our core competencies. Acknowledging and factoring in cultural diversity, facilitates our efficiency in working with teams in multiple countries. It makes us more agile in adapting to the local context. At Rahi Systems, we view diversity as a part of our overall culture. We acknowledge and respect diversity in the workplace because it helps us become a better organization overall.
We want to share some statistics about Rahi Systems’ diversity and equal opportunity. With offices in five continents, Rahi thrives on diversity and the strengths of diverse communities. The Rahi team speaks more than 50 languages within the company. We have people who come from more than 25 different religions and beliefs. We have PhDs, MS, MBAs, JDs and some that are doing their diploma training on the job. All of us work together as one team towards one goal: ensure our customers in different parts of the world are successful.
