Diversity Equity and Inclusion – how to ask the hard questions and get started

The business case for DEI has been proven but progress across industries and countries remains slow. Join our webinar where we discuss why.

The business case for DEI in the workplace has been continuously reaffirmed with countless examples of companies delivering higher revenue, generating faster innovation, and attracting a better talent pool.  

Yet overall progress remains slow. 

Management consultancy McKinsey & Co recently reported that despite there being a “stronger case for diversity” there is a “lack of material progress across all industries and in most countries”.  

The consultancy goes on to state that DEI is no longer a “nice to have”, companies that lead on DEI initiatives will not only be better positioned to attract a wider pool of candidates, but they will be better positioned to survive turbulent times such as now.  

Meanwhile, those that consider it a “luxury we cannot afford” – in the most extreme case scenario – may risk losing their right to operate. 

But valuable conversations any organisation can have with its employees about inclusion are likely to be uncomfortable. They call for mutual openness and for everyone’s courage to ask tough questions and to provide and hear tough answers. 

Watch the first episode of our webinar series to learn more about:  

  • The status of DEI in the Nordics 
  • DEI best practices – how to start the conversation and apply policies that make a difference 
  • Metrics you can use to measure DEI success
