Star Jones has a pretty simple message for business owners and CEOs everywhere: A diverse work force is the key to success.
“Inclusiveness makes business sense. My dad used to say, ‘If it don’t make money, it don’t make sense.’ Well, this makes money and makes sense,” Jones told HuffPost Live on Monday.
The attorney and original “The View” co-host spoke with host Marc Lamont Hillabout her new role as president of the Professional Diversity Network. Jones said that as the demographics of our nation continue to change, it is essential that businesses embrace all types of diversity by hiring African Americans, Latinos, members of the LGBT community, veterans and more.
