Career Outcomes

Predicted outcomes for graduates of Advancing
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Organizations

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, more than 70% of the
world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States,
inspiring businesses to venture overseas. Career opportunities
continue to grow for professionals who possess a sophisticated
knowledge of timely global issues and trends, and who can work
effectively across diverse organizational structures.

While many organizations are looking to expand overseas, the
diversity of the American population continues to grow including
workplace and school populations. This academic year, Aurora Public
Schools had students from more than 130 countries that spoke more
than 160 languages, and 36.8% of students at Denver Public Schools
were English language learners. As diversity grows, cultural
competence will be a crucial skill for professionals that work with
diverse populations.
