Closing the Gap by Teresa Boughey
Inclusion and Diversity isn’t a fad or the latest business initiative. It’s not a tick box exercise and it’s so much more than the now annual reporting requirements of disparity in pay. Ultimately – it’s here for good!
For a real and sustainable difference to be made, organisations need to adopt a more holistic approach to Inclusion and Diversity. This however requires focus, a break with ingrained traditions, a shift in mindsets, a re-design of organisational culture and a change in leadership behaviour.
Teresa’s unique tribe5 Diversity & Inclusion™ methodology set out in this book provides Board Directors and their Leadership Teams with a path to follow, enabling them to take Inclusion and Diversity off the ‘too difficult’ pile and move forward with confidence.
Business Leaders, Directors and HR Professionals should read this book to:
T – Take Stock – establish the truth in relation to your current Diversity and Inclusion position
R – Raise Awareness – understand why Inclusion and Diversity is important to gaining a competitive advantage
I – Inspire and Involve – recognise the benefits of an internal culture which inspires and involves everyone
B- Build for the Future – embrace Inclusion and Diversity to improve and sustain talent attraction and retention
E – Embed – ensure that Inclusion and Diversity is infused and firmly embedded within your organisation’s culture
Creating an environment where people feel a sense of belonging when they come to work, where they feel respected and valued for their unique difference, isn’t just about doing the right thing – it will enable you to attract top talent and outperform your competitors.
