  • We can tend to feel most comfortable with clones of ourselves, but businesses who don’t embrace diversity are missing out on talent and insight.
  • The benefits are broad: it supports a positive culture, a motivated workforce, and a healthy business.

  • Flexible working supports working parents and promotes gender diversity.
  • Diversity should be in the very DNA of the business, and must come from the very top.
