Why are inclusion and diversity important?

A focus on both inclusion and diversity is essential for businesses to reach transformative performance. Transformative performance allows companies, such as WESCO, to exceed goals and enable businesses to grow and transform as our markets, supplier partners, and customers continue to evolve.
