Post Meeting Notes – Diversity and Inclusion: Emerging Issues

On 16th September 2020, CRF members gathered for 'Diversity and Inclusion: Emerging Issues', a Zoom Interactive Event. In conversation with Stephen Frost, CEO and Founder, Frost Included and former Head of Diversity and Inclusion for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and Alastair Procter, Chief Human Resources Officer at Mediabrands, we explored the opportunities, challenges, and successes organisations are seeing as they broaden the scope of diversity and inclusion beyond gender, and as they grapple with the imperative to build and maintain inclusive cultures in remote working environments.

  • Diversifying diversity. Organisations are still working to achieve greater gender diversity, and yet building a workforce that is diverse across multiple dimensions is critical to meeting today’s challenges. What are organisations doing to achieve racial/ethnic diversity and inclusion? What are the unique challenges?
  • Remote inclusion. COVID-19 has, at least temporarily, sparked a remote working revolution for many organisations. While the flexibility inherent to remote working presents new opportunities to diversify the workforce, it also raises issues around inclusion of different groups. What are organisations doing to harness new opportunities for diversity while making sure that teams maintain inclusive practices, in order to reap the benefits of a diverse workforce?

Briefing Paper: Diversity and Inclusion: Emerging Issues

The purpose of this Briefing Paper is to explore the challenges associated with building more inclusive workplaces for racial/ethnic minority colleagues, and the emerging opportunities and challenges around inclusion in remote working environments. Specifically, we look at how the Black Lives Matter movement is reshaping conversation and practice, and we explore what HR can do – in practical terms – to harness the new opportunities remote working brings for diversity while making sure that teams maintain inclusive practices.
