Diversity & Inclusion

Designing a diverse and inclusive workplace culture means creating and nurturing an environment where all employees, regardless of gender, race, age, education, disability, religion, sexual orientation, background, or family situation, feel valued, respected, and able to succeed.

Why invest in a diverse and inclusive workplace culture? Diverse teams in the right conditions will yield the most innovative solutions. Organizations that promote diverse and inclusive cultures have been proven to be high performing, agile, and much better positioned to attract and retain top talent:

  • Companies in the top-quartile for ethnic/cultural diversity on executive teams are 33% more likely to have industry-leading profitability. (McKinsey, 2018)

  • Companies in the bottom quartile for both gender and ethnic/ cultural diversity are 29% less likely to achieve above-average profitability. (McKinsey, 2018)

  • Companies in the top-quartile for gender diversity on executive teams are 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to have superior value creation. (McKinsey, 2018)

  • Companies with the most ethnically/ culturally diverse boards worldwide are 43% more likely to experience higher profits. (McKinsey, 2018)

Fostering this type of environment is more important now than ever as companies face new challenges associated with an increasingly global workforce, heightened competition for knowledge workers, a multi-generational workforce, and increasing need for rapid innovation.
