How important is EDI, Equality, Diversion and Inclusion, to you and or your business?
Employers are increasingly coming to recognise the strong business case for improving the level of diversity and inclusion within their workforce and across all levels of their senior leadership. A more diverse and inclusive workforce delivers higher levels of engagement, creativity and innovation.
Latest research carried out by McKinsey on why diversity matters, found that companies in the top quartile for gender or racial and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their national industry medians.
In their latest report, Diversity wins: How inclusion matters they state that they have seen ‘a stronger business case for diversity, but slow progress overall’. Since 2014 the data has seen uplifts from 15-20% on executive team female representation in the US and UK, yet globally, just a one percentage point from 2017 to 2019, with over one third of the companies having no women at all on their executive teams.
We are very excited to soon be launching a collaboration with a business and individuals committed to helping business leaders and organisations, move the dial when it comes to EDI.
We are looking for expressions of interest from business leaders, and or HR Directors who are about to start or, are already on their diversity journey who may benefit from a series of roundtable events and or webinars. There will be no charge for these initial sessions, This is something both I, the team at Douglas Jackson and our partner are extremely passionate about and we want to offer a confidential platform and opportunity where you can learn, share and hear about best practice developments.
