Creating an Inclusive Culture

Progress towards diversity has not always met the promise of investments made. One of the underlying reasons for this is that organisations have focused on increasing the number of employees from underrepresented groups, rather than addressing the organisation culture that determines whether people feel included, and thrive. This research report explores what an inclusivity and an inclusive culture looks like, and sets out practical recommendations for improvement. It focuses on two key aspects that shape the culture: the values and attitudes of leaders, and the systems and processes that define how organisation operates. CRF members can access the report freely by logging in on the website.
