Our coaches have extensive experience in creating and leading diversity and inclusion programmes for global businesses, which have measurably improved retention and development of diverse talent pools. Drawing on this experience, we partner with global financial services firms to transform well-meaning efforts into lasting change.
Our coaching and training services can be tailored to:
Working closely with senior leaders, I&D leaders and leaders of I&D networks, we will partner with you to understand your specific needs and – drawing on our in-depth knowledge of the challenges professionals face – recommend impactful strategies to address these.
We have coached and trained multiple leaders across a plethora of financial services firms – we recognise that professionals tend to be more open with us than they are with their managers. This places us in an ideal position to genuinely understand and implement strategies that will work for your organisation.
We also run internal workshops to understand your teams’ key issues and empower your leaders by raising awareness for the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our clients appreciate that an external provider can work with them to deliver their goals, share best practices, and also act objectively to review their existing policies and procedures.
Companies with greater gender diversity perform better. McKinsey’s research has shown that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to demonstrate superior value creation. Furthermore, companies in the top quartile for ethnic/cultural diversity on executive teams were 33% more likely to have industry-leading profitability.
In a recent McKinsey survey, 39% of job applications said they had chosen not to pursue a role in a company that they perceived to not be inclusive.
Women are at their best as leaders when they are aged 50-55. Yet, this is the demographic that is least included in selection pools for senior roles.
