Industry & Society

A diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions and outcomes for everyone.”

Sundar Pichai, CEO, Alphabet Inc.

Squaring the Diversity Circle

Diversity and inclusivity in the workplace has long been accepted as not only essential from a moral perspective, but also for organisations to be effective. Diverse teams are proven to be more innovative and successful, yet organisations across the public and private sector still struggle with how to embrace diversity.

We believe that it is only by having diverse and authentic leadership across all levels of an organisation and industry that a culture can develop whereby all colleagues feel included and valued. By empowering leaders, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or socio-economic circumstances, you can create a sustainable culture shift where everyone feels valued and anyone can succeed.

Why Does Diversity in Leadership Matter?

Set against the backdrop of the myriad economic and operational challenges facing the public and private sector at the moment, it would be easy to say that industry and society have more pressing concerns than worrying about diversity in leadership.

Here’s Why You’d be Wrong:

  • Because it’s the people within public, private and third sector organisations who design and deliver the products and services that we all rely on every day, for almost every facet of our lives. The more diversity of experience and thought that we have within these teams and their leadership, the better the solutions will be for society
  • Because perception matters - the leaders of today are role-models for the leaders of tomorrow. You can’t be what you can’t see
  • Because organisations across the globe are facing unprecedented challenges in unearthing the talent needed to meet demand, yet fail to effectively recruit and develop individuals from across all aspects of society
