How to Build a Diverse & Inclusive Business

Creating an inclusive and diverse organisation is now a business imperative. Leaders tell Criticaleye about the practical steps they are taking to deliver on this.
 
The death of George Floyd and subsequent unrest in the USA forced a global re-evaluation of attitudes towards diversity and inclusion. As we focus on navigating the challenging economic environment, leaders must ensure they don’t allow the spotlight on D&I to fade.

Featuring commentary from:

Joanna Aunon, Director, WiHTL: "When companies have had to restructure, whilst some have kept D&I at the core of their selection criteria, many have not taken this into consideration,”
 
Diana Barea, Managing Director, Accenture Strategy UKI & Lead for Talent & Organisation Practice, Accenture: “Shape the next step with the voice of the people who have been most underrepresented and probably had the worst experience within an organisation."
 
Yetunde Hofmann, NED, CIPD: "It takes a courageous CEO, willing to stick his or her head above the
parapet, to make lasting change."
 
Amrit Jhita, Senior Account Executive, Advisory, Criticaleye: "The narrative around the Black Lives Matter movement has progressed and every organisation must now ask themselves how they can make meaningful and lasting change,”
 
David Meads, CEO UK&I, Cisco: “It’s a business imperative to mine the best ideas from the best talent in order to gain that competitive edge. Having a diverse organisation across the full spectrum should therefore also be a business imperative to facilitate that."
 
Nichole Viviani, Chief People Officer, TSG: “We had a focus group and we listened. It was very difficult and very emotional, but it was what needed to happen."
