Championing Diversity and Inclusion within organisations
"Inclusion matters to me because I know what it's like to be different. I know what exclusion looks like and I know what happens when we get inclusion right. Everybody should be valued for what they have to offer, to have their differences recognised as strengths."
The link between equality and success has always fascinated me. My story is all about breaking through barriers and I wanted to better understand how to help others do the same. This was my drive for kicking off a comprehensive two year research project that drilled into equality, diversity and inclusion to identify how companies can get it right. I found that:
- Stereotypes can change people's behaviour towards others, but they can also change the way we perceive ourself.
- People can unintentionally create their own barriers to success. Once I’ve helped them realise that they’re in a far better position to tackle real barriers.
- There’s lots of great work going on to improve equality but it’s often piecemeal, tactical and project-based rather than sustainable, strategic and systematic
Diversity of thought is a great performance driver - LINK BETWEEN SPORT AND INCLUSION
It’s crucial we tackle equality, diversity and inclusion more effectively. Not only does it enhance your organisation's reputation, it’s proven to boost your bottom line:
