In a recent survey by Ernst &Young 100% of business leaders agreed with the statement ‘Inclusive environment is vital for business performance’
Yet the same report demonstrates a significant gap between what organisations believe about diversity and inclusion, and their actions.
Designing and implementing a diversity and inclusion strategy can be a fraught with difficulty; from achieving stakeholder support, to resourcing, and identifying which activities will make a difference.
Many organisations struggle with the realities of translating good intentions into meaningful sustainable changes.
Yet the case for more inclusive and diverse workplaces has never been more compelling. Companies with more diverse boards perform better, are more profitable and have greater success in hiring and retaining talent.
