Diversity – Getting Beyond the Numbers

Two recent articles suggest that we should also be looking beyond the numbers.

As the EHRC calls for mandatory reporting from larger employers of their data on staff recruitment, retention or promotion by ethnicity or disability as reported by People Management last week, two recent articles suggest that we should also be looking beyond the numbers.

The first, in Forbes, argues that organisations must more clearly focus on developing cognitive diversity – how people feel, think, and act – rather  than demographic (or surface) diversity.

The second, from Wharton, makes the case that fostering participation, a sense of belonging and mutual respect is critical: “The full potential of diversity can only be realized when all members of an organization feel included, that they belong, and that they are respected for who they are and what they offer.”

Both are worth a read.
