Goals: Set clear goals from a Board level to drive an inclusive culture where all can thrive

Strategy: Diversity and inclusion in its broadest sense (ie not just one strand) explicit, clear and embedded in your strategy and it’s positioned as an integral enabler/component to achieving strategic ambitions.

Leadership: Empowered your board to fully champion the agenda and both Chair and CEO are united in this position.

Communication: The overall strategy with D&I embedded is communicated further empowering the business to prioritise diversity and inclusion in the day to day running of their business.
