Multiple studies show that companies that truly embrace diversity and inclusion are more profitable, have greater innovation and deliver a better customer experience. They have a more engaged and motivated workforce.
But, with too few (white) men involved in D&I initiatives the pace of change is frustratingly slow. Why don’t they get involved?
- Relevance: Some don’t see a problem; others see a problem with representation (diversity) but don’t appreciate the greater challenges to career progress experienced by many of their colleagues (inclusion).
- Motivation: Some don’t think there is enough in it for them to spend time and effort getting involved; even when they agree that it is important, they don’t always know how they can help.
- Reticence: Even if they are supportive, they can be concerned that they may be criticised for speaking out in the wrong way; or concerned that speaking out will damage their career progress.
