THRIVE Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Series: Webinar 2
Part of the THRIVE - Women in Wealth Program

June 16, 2022

4:30-5:30 p.m. ET


A Guide to Inclusive Work Cultures: A perspective from the UK with Herman Brodie, Ambassador of the UK Diversity Project

In hindsight, bemoans Dame Helena Morrisey, Chair of the Diversity Project, we should have called it the Inclusion Project. This was no concession of defeat, though. In its first five years of existence, the Diversity Project had lobbied for and secured obligatory gender pay gap reporting at UK corporates, and substantially greater female representation on the boards of major UK firms. But any firm can ‘do’ diversity; it is inclusion that is the difficult part. For an organization to be genuinely inclusive, it must change in the presence of diversity. And this change is painfully slow.
