Inclusion & Diversity: Driving business innovation
In an era of disruptive change, Communications, Media & Technology embraces diversity as a source of innovation and a competitive advantage.
"If you have a less diverse, less inclusive environment, you are not going to hear all the voices. Different business models emerge from those different voices so actually to innovate,
you need maximum diversity of thought."
-OMAR ABBOSH, Group Chief Executive – Communications, Media & Technology
Innovation has always mattered in business. If your business or society isn’t innovating, the world moves on and leaves you behind. It’s essential for survival and success. How does innovation happen?
Communications, Media & Technology Group Chief Executive Omar Abbosh provides insight into how equality drives innovation by bringing different opinions and different approaches to the table. Different business models emerge from those different voices so actually to innovate, you need maximum diversity of thought.
Omar explains why creating a diverse environment requires leadership from the top down. His insight provides inspiration for businesses of all sizes.
The 2019 Women4Tech Summit delivered thought-provoking conversations on how technology is impacting the jobs of the future. At its core, all participants unanimously agree that the key differentiator for any business, including those in the Communications, Media and Technology industries, is to embrace diversity and gender-balance in the age of digitization to fuel growth. Diversity will be the key driver for innovation as technology companies look for ways to support the rapidly changing world of customer experiences.
