The Case For Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

How diversity, equity & inclusion can provide businesses with a competitive advantage

DEI Policies for a Competitive Advantage

In the workplace research study, Delivering Through Diversity, (McKinsey, Jan 2018) the conclusions are unequivocal — diverse and inclusive organisations are more robust, agile, and successful than those who do not make the connection between diversity, inclusion, and commercial advantage. Implementing genuine diversity, equality, and inclusion in the workplace requires effort from all levels of the business, and a strong commitment to progressive change from upper management. But – when done successfully, DEI strategies have been shown to produce greater satisfaction at work and increase business growth.

Inclusive Leadership vs Diverse Leadership

The Leadership Shadow Model demonstrates that all levels of leadership have a very significant influence on diversity and inclusion policies within the wider business. It’s important to identify the differences between diverse, and inclusive leadership, as inclusive leadership is not the same as having a diverse leadership team. All leaders, regardless of their background, should embody inclusive leadership behaviours and act as champions for diversity in their organisations. Diversity in leadership also benefits the growth and DEI journeys of a company, ensuring a wider range of perspectives and better representation that will benefit employees and customers alike.
