LEADERS, BOARDS AND DIVERSITY

There is increasing concern about a lack of diversity in the boardroom and management of a company. Two key areas are the almost total absence of ethnic diversity, and the shortage of women in the boardroom. It is now considered best practice to change this scenario, and to have diversity at the very heart of leadership and decision-making. Sameness reduces innovation, and also the opportunity for critical reflection at the heart of the organisation.

Dr. Atul Shah, the Founder of the web portal, www.diverseethics.com is presently a member of the Board of the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, and Diverse Ethics is also advising the Appointments Commission about ethnic diversity in public boards. Diverse Ethics also has significant leadership experience, and an expert understanding of the issues and challenges of diversity.

We can help your organisation by:

  • diagnosing the problems and barriers
  • training the existing leaders not to see diversity as a threat but instead as an opportunity
  • designing a bespoke strategy for culture change
  • showing how to harness the maximum benefits of a 'borderless mind'

Feel free to contact us at any time, and we would be happy to guide you in this critical area.
