Diversity breeds innovation. And innovation breeds business success. It is often said that an organisation’s greatest asset is its people. And it is people who make organisations great. But how do organisations attract and retain the best talent? How do they nurture this talent and unleash the energy, drive and ideas that comes from attracting a diverse workforce? Asian Media Group, Britain’s biggest Asian publishing group, will explore these questions and more at the second GG2 Diversity Conference on 24th October 2018. Diversity is essential to the growth and prosperity of organisations because a diversity of perspectives, experiences, cultures, genders, and age reap untold benefits. And it’s these benefits we’ll be exploring at the GG2 Conference, appropriately titled The Diversity Dividend.
Research by McKinsey clearly demonstrates that companies with more diverse senior management teams and boards are considerably more profitable than those with all-white, male boards. Multiple studies have revealed that more diverse companies are better able to attract top talent, improve their customer orientation, and increase employee satisfaction and decision making, often leading to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns. The GG2 Diversity Conference will bring together some of Britain’s most influential leaders and thinkers from different businesses and sectors, who will share their knowledge and expertise and explore why investment in diversity is critical for business growth, and what organisations can do to improve diversity and support inclusion in the workplace. As Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE remarked at our last conference, “Diversity in the boardroom is not about social justice… it is about the fact that diversity is a nuclear engine for competitive advantage.” Join us for our second ground-breaking conference and hear some of the country’s leading and most inspiring diversity practitioners.
