Why Diversity and Inclusion Matters Now More Than Ever

Addressing the Impact of the Pandemic on Women in the Workforce

The pandemic has brought to light the disproportionate impact on women in the workforce, exacerbating existing challenges and prompting a significant rise in female workforce exits. According to research from the International Labour Organization (ILO), globally, women's employment declined by 5% in 2020, compared to 3.9% for men, highlighting the urgent need for action.

Research from McKinsey & Company further emphasises the importance of inclusion and diversity. Companies with diverse executive teams are 25% more likely to experience above-average profitability. This underscores the critical importance of prioritising inclusion and diversity initiatives to address the unique challenges faced by women in the workforce today.
