Are you fully leveraging the diversity within your business?
When surveyed employees of firms with diversity in leadership are:
- 45% likelier to report year on year market growth
- 70% likelier to report that the firm captured new markets
Gender should not be an issue in business leadership, but it is. Despite clear evidence that demonstrates that gender diversity delivers results, the FTSE 100 boards still only have 26% representation from women in the UK. Because of the overwhelming evidence of better returns for business the government has set a goal of 33% of women on boards by 2020.
Your organisation needs to share in the success that gender diversity brings. By aligning your leadership profile to your client base you are future proofing your business.
