How can purposeful action from leaders drive real change?
The last few years have been a tough environment for businesses. Post pandemic recovery is in full swing but rising inflation threatens to disrupt growth once again. This means a squeeze on real incomes and more pressure on businesses to remain competitive. As profits decrease, how will boardrooms across the Americas approach their diversity and inclusion (D&I) strategies, long seen as a nice to have and not imperative to operational outcomes?
D&I needs to be positioned as a market opportunity and a core business strategy. Studies have shown that a truly diverse workforce improves productivity, performance, and creativity.
How do you build a culture to increase the percentage of women throughout the business - not just at the top? What does the future of leadership look like? How can companies retain diverse talent and show loyalty? As we see a shift in net wealth towards women, does this impact businesses making decisions at board level? How can purposeful action from leaders drive real change?
