Their research showed that at least 57% of those surveyed thought their boss should be doing more to increase the diversity of their employees. The research has a US bias but perhaps reflects a growing trend across the globe (Glassdoor operates internationally). Read more of the results here.

International non-profits should, by their nature, be have of the most diverse workforces around. What’s your view?

Has working in an NGO broadened your horizons or narrowed them? Do you feel you are getting the true benefit of different world views on your organisation’s work? Would it make you consider a job change? Has it?!

We’d love to know what you think on this important issue. Get tweeting maybe!
