Who’s behind it? – The SustainAbility Institute by ERM (2021)
How can it help? – The events of 2020 spurred significant dialogue around diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues. They also fostered understanding that corporations have a significant role to play in creating equitable and inclusive organizations and building a more equitable society. Through desk research, focus groups, and interviews, this report delves into the key drivers behind the increased expectations for businesses, explores corporate progress to date, and examines common challenges companies face in implementing DEI initiatives. The report also provides best practice examples and case studies for how corporations are integrating DEI considerations into their workforce, products and services, and supply chains as well as supporting DEI in the communities where they operate.
