Common diversity mistakes companies should avoid
It's a mistake to assume that one single solution can solve an entire company's diversity and inclusion problems, according to God-is Rivera, director of inclusion and cultural resonance for VML. Other common diversity errors include putting inclusion in a corner of the company instead of placing it at the center of how the business operates, she adds.

Stop creating C-suite roles
Key areas need leaders, but the trend seems to be to give C-suite titles to all of those leaders, which creates bureaucracy, writes Russell Fleischer, an investment partner and former CEO. "Plus, the trickle-down effect can make an otherwise logical org chart look more like a bank's, where everyone's a vice president and titles mean little," he writes.
