Overview

In today’s global business environment, diversity has become increasingly important. As the awareness of the benefits of diversity and inclusion grows, these components become key in the facilitation of talent acquisition and the ethical growth of a company’s employment brand. The importance placed on workplace diversity and inclusion partly results from the recognition that improved diversity can contribute to an increase in organisational performance and, thus, the differentiation it can provide in competitive markets.

Having said this, the diversifying of working environments can be easier said than done, and actually delivering this vision across all levels of an organisation is not a straightforward process. In an aggressive business culture, where companies are constantly striving to identify the means by which to eclipse their rivals, characteristics such as gender, religion, ethnicity and social status have been, and, unfortunately, continue to be, viewed negatively when juxtaposed to the societal perception of success being white, male and Christian. One of the biggest issues with this paradigm, and a significant threat to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, is the undermining influence of unconscious bias.

If we truly wish to work in more inclusive teams, with a diverse cross-section of gender and social strata, then we need to take concerted and aligned action. In doing so, we must not only accept collective responsibility, but also individual responsibility for our actions, and acknowledge how and why we unconsciously pass judgement within the workplace.
