Diversity is a fact of life. It’s what we have in common because we’re all different. Inclusion is about valuing and reflecting diversity in our institutions, brands and communities. It isn’t a fad or a box-ticking exercise. It’s not just a matter for HR or CSR.
Diversity and inclusion give brands a competitive advantage. Inclusive companies have happier workforces and attract greater customer satisfaction and loyalty. They are more innovative, global in outlook and better prepared for the future. Diversity and inclusion also promote more cohesive communities, where people can be confident that they are respected and treated fairly.
But expertise and research capacity are often lacking when it comes to diversity and inclusion. The issues are complex, sensitive and fast evolving. No one wants to get it wrong. Leadership, evidence and insight are needed to drive change.
That’s why we created Versiti.
