Gender diversity:

The equitable or fair representation of people of different gender identities.


The act of making a person part of a group, where each member is afforded the same rights and opportunities.

Why are gender diversity and inclusion important?

Research from Boston Consulting Group shows that bringing diverse perspectives to the table increases companies’ resilience and agility, as well as boosting innovation and financial profit. Not to mention the benefits to individual wellbeing.

But hiring a diverse workforce is only the beginning. To really see results, companies must include everyone in the conversation. Individuals should feel comfortable to share their thoughts and ideas freely, while knowing their contribution is valued.
