The importance of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for Organisations
Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) is a strategic business imperative. As we adjust to a post pandemic hybrid working environment there has never been a more important time to address equity, diversity and inclusivity. The drivers are multifaceted.
Fundamentally it’s the right thing to do, but it’s also inextricably connected to People, Productivity and Planet. EDI intersects with ESG and these priorities will shape businesses for years to come. COVID19 has had a devastating and long term effect upon marginalised communities; Race, Gender and Social Mobility, but simultaneously it gives organisations the opportunity to recalibrate and build back better.
At Inclusive Group we passionately believe inclusion needs to be the beating heart of EDI strategy. Without inclusion there is no value in investing in diversity and promoting equity.
Where there is opportunity there is hope -
"The most important steps for change are motivation and stakeholder involvement, the Exec understanding the strategic business case, allyship being understood and translated into action, development interventions to allow ramping on and off in the career cycle, effective positive role models, and above all an inclusive culture. Get the processes bias free-it’s a lot easier to debias a process than it is a person!"
