Build Back Better: The requirement for resilience

Presented by

Julia Streets

About this talk

Host Julia Streets is joined by Mitesh Sheth, Chief Executive Officer of Redington and Jayne Styles, co-lead of the Diversity Project’s Ambassador Programme. They discuss ‘building back better’ in the investment management industry and the role of consultants and investors in driving change. They share detailed insights about how best to attract and onboard diverse talent with particular consideration for ethnic minority employees and staff with disabilities. Together they share their perspectives about building and changing workplace culture, corporate and individual resilience and the importance of fully embracing D&I to ensure organisations are adaptable, a fundamental requirement for survival and growth. Reflecting on 2020, Jayne and Mitesh also observe how many firms are reviewing their purpose, taking into account lessons learned through this lockdown year.

We’ve seen a growing appreciation of the value of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the financial services industry. Organisations have increased their focus on D&I initiatives, but is this simply marketing rhetoric? Some would argue that we’ve seen great progress, whilst others would say there is still much to be done. For each episode of DiverCity Podcast we invite recognised leaders and influencers – people who are pioneers in their own right – to talk about areas of transformation and aspects of D&I that need greater focus. Our contributors offer their insight and practical ideas to help organisations and individuals drive change. Tune into our fortnightly podcast.
