To understand client needs, create high performing teams and be more innovative, organisations are slowly recognising that leaders, managers and the broader workforce cannot reflect one homogenous group. Yet many organisations have a reactionary or tactical approach to Inclusion & Diversity (I&D); focusing on awareness events, cultural days, breakfasts, mentoring programs to ‘fix diverse employees confidence’, blinding CVs. These approaches are often underpinned by a lack of rigorous research demonstrating causal impact and positive outcomes.
Fundamental to bold pragmatic action to create diverse, inclusive and well workplaces is an evidenced-based understanding of where bias occurs in structural, cultural, interpersonal and personal dimensions. An I&D Audit identifies where bias occurs; bias interrupters are created; progress measured; the process reiterated; with leadership focus to disrupt it are critical steps to an evidenced-based approach.
This White Paper builds on our research published in the Australian Financial Planning Research Journal “Bias interrupters- intentionally disrupting the status quo to create inclusive and well workplaces” in the Australian Financial Planning industry.
