What is the business
Companies with diverse Executive Boards enjoy significantly higher earnings and returns on equity. Research undertaken by McKinsey in 2012 indicates:
Companies with more diverse executive teams have 53% higher ROEs and achieve 14% higher EBIT margins.
Companies with female Board members outperformed those without by 26% over the past six years in terms of share price, return on equity, gearing, book value and average growth.
Workforces that are both diverse and inclusive have 12% higher employee productivity; 19% higher retention; 57% higher team collaboration diversity of thought and therefore innovation; and 42%
higher team commitment.
We also know that globalisation and more opportunities for cross border work also calls for a more diverse workforce.
