The Inclusive Growth Playbook

Building an Inclusive and Diverse Workforce


Diversity, equity, and inclusion are good for business. Yet a roadblock many well-intentioned organisations are facing is that, although their teams are diverse, they have some distance to go in making them truly inclusive. Managers have the responsibility to build a culture of equity where people are supported to overcome potential disadvantages, yet many companies are failing to enact cultural and operational change.

Inclusive Growth Playbook

Agility in Mind conducted a survey of 250 UK business leaders in partnership with global research house, Censuswide. The results show nearly half (48%) of organisations surveyed have only one or fewer positive DEI initiatives.

Building a diverse and inclusive environment is not only a good thing to do, but research suggests it creates a better working environment. That’s why Agility in Mind created a framework for business leaders to implement positive and meaningful changes with genuine impact.

(33%) surveyed said, more training for managers would help to improve the effectiveness of DEI policies. This rises to nearly two in five (38%) in larger organisations of over 500 employees.

“Building a truly diverse and inclusive culture is laden with challenges, but our audit reveals that many well-intentioned leaders have pledges and goals to reach it. What we are seeing is that most are struggling to enact the type of top-down organisational change that is required to be successful – and that the pace of real action even amongst public-facing companies is very slow. That’s why Agility in Mind is providing a framework for this transition so that business leaders can implement positive and meaningful changes with genuine impact.”
