Create a future-oriented strategy.

To start the conversation, businesses should understand that they have the power to dismantle sexism and racism inside their organizations.


  • A people’s business should ensure a fair treatment to all employees regardless of their differences.
  • Equity is a core human need and a guideline for your organization.
  • Remove invisible barriers by challenging the status quo.
  • Enable workers to reach their full potential and feel included.
  • Fuel innovation and increase your overall organizational performance.
  • Be an attractive employer for future talents.


  • Diversity is rooted in differences between people: ethnicities, genders, social origins, educations, work experiences, personalities, competencies, religions, disabilities, sexual orientations…
  • HR reports are processing data around these differences as key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • Diversity KPIs are your starting point to verbalize the right goal and to set a timeline.
  • Understand your reality and welcome change.


  • Inclusion is the choice of cultivating diverse teams at all levels of your organization.
  • Innovative long-term vision that enables the integration of multiple perspectives in problem solving.
  • Create an environment where being different is a valuable force.
  • Each employee has the right to bring their whole selves to work, to be treated with respect and dignity.
  • Committing to an inclusive culture means having zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment and bullying.


  • Achieve racial & gender equity in your hiring process. Example of action: increase your racial & gender representation on your executive team by 50% in 3 years.
  • Provide training to your people at all levels on topics like unconscious bias and diversity management.
  • Integrate Diversity and Inclusion strategies in performance management, leadership assessment and training.
  • Include Diversity and Inclusion awareness sessions when onboarding new employees.
