Success in improving diversity is not a side issue
Success in improving diversity is not a side issue: it is critical to the business. It therefore needs to be understood and championed at the most senior level, adequately resourced and promoted throughout the organisation.
What you should do
- Develop and agree a strategic, structured approach as you would for any other project, with senior sponsors, targets and deliverables.
- Identify what practical elements are needed and provide the resources and support to make it happen.
- Remember that action on diversity is a business project that requires multiple changes. Taking just one of the Ten Steps will make a difference. But changing the culture of an organisation involves many interlinked processes and acting on all Ten Steps will reap benefits beyond the sum of their parts.
