Despite glaring evidence that diversity and inclusion (D&I) should be a priority amidst the global pandemic, the latest McKinsey Report "Diversity wins: How Inclusion Matters" report finds that some organizations and leaders have pulled back their efforts, stating that diversity and inclusion is a “luxury they cannot afford.” This kind of logic makes it clear that some leaders still fail to understand the real benefits to be gained from investing in diversity and inclusion programs.
On this episode, I am joined by Kevin Dolan, a senior partner with McKinsey who will unpack their latest research report which makes a clear case for why diverse companies are now more likely than ever to outperform less diverse peers on profitability. Kevin will also share why companies need to double down their D&I efforts today in the wake of COVID 19 and what each of us can do to prepare for the post-pandemic workplace.
