Here’s some key takeaways from this episode:
Poorly conceived Employee Resource Groups can be exclusive
“A vehicle intended for inclusion, but actually they look like a mechanism for exclusion”
Employee Resource Groups should be inclusive by definition
“I define employee resource groups as voluntary groups of employees within an organisation based around a social identity, shared interests or values. I used this definition in my PhD and its taken from the academic literature.”
The Opportunity for Organisations moving forward
“There is no one size fits all and organisations need to tailor their diversity and inclusion strategies, to their particular circumstances. The good news is, it’s clear that Deloitte are trying to do that”
