Is your gender equality initiative fully inclusive – or does it really target white women? Do your efforts to improve racial diversity in leadership mainly speak to men? Many organisations have diversity initiatives for gender and race, but not effectively integrating the two. Gender inequality is often magnified for members of racial minorities – and vice versa. This means that any approach that misses the opportunity to integrate gender and race inclusion initiatives will inevitably fall short of its targets.
This year we are looking at how organisations can design diversity, inclusion and belonging initiatives that work. As part of this work we have partnered with London Business School and UCL associate professors Aneeta Rattan and Raina Brands to enhance the inclusion related data that we collect and co-analyse our data set using an intersectional approach.
Initial analyses reveal that important differences at the intersection of race and gender in employee experience may be concealed as a consequence of analytical practices. This in turn may underpin the reasons for workplace gender equality initiatives falling short. Aneeta and Raina will deliver this masterclass, bringing their expertise to reveal what may be overlooked in your current diversity efforts, the barriers to full inclusion that your practices and policies may communicate, and help you think about concrete strategies that would fully integrate an intersectional approach into your organisational culture.
