Diversity and Inclusion are no longer just one of many items on the organisational agenda; they are a recognised driver of leadership, business and organisational success. Now more than ever, as organisations come to terms with competition for talent, integrating diverse cultures, with demographic and labour market changes, or with new Global or country specific legislation highlighting the need to go beyond compliance and create fair, equitable and inclusive work environments.
The term diversity in itself is barely sufficient given the complexity of all it encompasses: from the more easily identifiable ‘visible differences’ of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, age and national origin, to ‘micro inequities’ such as marital status, religion/belief, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation, not forgetting the less tractable dimensions of educational background, training, sector experience/organisational tenure, even personality.
It is a sizeable challenge for any organisation to treat everyone fairly and nurture talent throughout the organisation whilst at the same time imbuing the corporate culture with true inclusiveness and equality and bringing new services to an increasingly discerning diverse public.
