Diversity through Crisis
The COVID-19 crisis highlighted a stronger business case for diversity and inclusion. Putting it at the top of your agenda is more important than ever. Organisations with ample diversity and inclusion initiatives were able to respond to the crisis quickly and more effectively, and are recovering faster.

Research by McKinsey and Co. shows how important D&I remains even through a crisis – if companies don’t prioritise D&I, not only will their bottom lines suffer, but their own people’s lives too. Diverse talent is important to maintain
