Additional Details:

Diversity and inclusion has become a critical issue around the world. The organization of today operates as a network of teams, thrives on empowerment, open dialogue, and inclusive working styles. Leading organizations now see diversity and inclusion as a comprehensive strategy woven into every aspect of the talent life cycle to enhance employee engagement, help improve brand, and drive performance.

Despite the increased investment in diversity and inclusion, many organizations are not becoming more diverse or inclusive. For example, our research found that, while 71 percent of organizations aspire to have an "inclusive" culture in the future, only 12 percent have achieved this standard. Despite the increased level of interest, only 6 percent of companies actually tie compensation to diversity outcomes. Why? The answer is simple: Solving diversity and inclusion challenges is can be dauntingly difficult.

Our research shows that organizations that are effective move beyond training to focus on measurement, transparency, and personal accountability to build cultures that are truly inclusive.

Organizations with inclusive cultures are six times more likely to be innovative, to anticipate change and respond effectively, three times more likely to be high performing and twice as likely to meet or exceed financial targets. Finally, our analysis reveals six principles key to becoming a more inclusive organization.
