Customer, workforce and shareholder expectations have vaulted Inclusion, Diversity & Equity (ID&E) as a major priority for C-suite leaders.
Businesses are under great pressure to deliver value for all shareholders: to turn their responsible goals into actions and create lasting impact. Those that succeed are sustainable organizations which embrace ID&E at their core.
ID&E is a powerful driver of growth, brand, and societal impact, creating value for workforce, customers, shareholders and communities. From opening up new pathways for attracting, engaging and retaining talent, to creating diverse teams that foster innovation and new market opportunities, companies that embed ID&E across their organization amplify their purpose and values while furthering growth objectives.
"C-suite leaders are driving sustainable business practices, which include ensuring a workforce that’s inclusive and diverse in every way," said Christie Smith, lead for Talent & Organization at Accenture.
