Growing Importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Surging Significance of
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The business case for DE&I is stronger than ever, with evidence suggesting that companies with diverse executive teams are more likely to achieve financial outperformance. During the COVID-19 crisis, DE&I has become a powerful enabler of business performance. Companies embracing diverse talents and including multiple perspectives will more likely emerge from problems stronger.
Diverse and inclusive companies are more likely to make better decisions, innovate radically, and anticipate shifts in consumer needs. This is crucial, especially in challenging times, and demonstrates that DE&I is not just a moral imperative but a fundamental business strategy.
However, progress in DE&I is uneven across organizations. Some are making real gains, while others lag, affecting their profitability and growth. A commitment to DE&I must be systematic and evidence-based, tailored to the company’s individual needs, with core-business leadership accountability.
