Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging
Leading change and innovation
“Companies are most successful when they embrace diversity in gender, race, perspective and personalities. Businesses that go from an all-male or all-female leadership team to an even mix of gender could see an increase in revenue of around 41%, according to a study co-authored by an MIT researcher.
Another study showed that after studying 1,700 companies, those who had a diverse team had 19% higher revenue than those who didn’t. Having a healthy mix of leaders has been proven to lead to more creative ideas, more efficient problem-solving and better financial achievements.” – Forbes
The evidence is clear. Diversity and inclusion are critical for a healthy society, economy and workplace.
But we can only succeed by removing invisible barriers, changing outdated mindsets and creating a workplace where everyone can belong.
We are in a moment where real change is possible. Circumstances have transformed the way many of us work and live, and in the process, has broken down many existing structures. We now have the chance to rebuild systems and practices to create workplaces where everyone can thrive.
