, Chair, Impact Investing Institute: It's not a choice of financial performance or ESG performance – the two are increasingly side by side now in terms of investor expectations.
, Chair, Experian UK: Looking at social mobility, why wouldn’t you open your organisation up the widest possible talent pool for future employees?
, Chair, C&C Group: We're clear that this is absolutely fundamental to our strategy. So, we should get on with the things that are important to us and start measuring them.

, NED, SGI and VGG & Board Mentor, Criticaleye: We brought employees in to share their voice in a session with the Board. It’s been a really useful way to have a two-way dialogue.
