Diversity and Inclusion: Rethinking workplace diversity

Top quartile companies for diversity were found to be more likely to financially outperform industry medians than bottom quartile companies for gender diversity (by 16%) and ethnic diversity (by 35%) (McKinsey & Company, 2017).

Workplace diversity is far more than just a moral issue. Organisations can harness the difference in people to help them become more successful, more innovative, more skilled and better able to cater to their diverse clients’ needs. However, putting steps in place to build a diverse workforce is not enough. So what can you do?

Join Mollie and Arianna as they discuss the importance of having a D&I strategy in your recruitment and people processes, how to cultivate an inclusive workforce and the challenges you may come across.

Key takeaways:
- Why is diversity important in the workplace?
- Interesting statistics on bias, diversity and inclusion
- How you can cultivate diversity in the workplace

This webinar is for HR professionals, leaders and managers looking to improve their diversity and inclusion strategy by addressing unconscious bias in the workplace. 

Mollie has an Occupational Psychology MSc with University of Leicester and is a Research Assistant within the Global Science Team. She is mainly responsible for carrying out academic research in relation to psychometric assessments and validating concepts to help inform new product ideas.
