Unleashing The Financial Impact of Diversity and Inclusion
Promoted by Unleashing The Financial Impact of Diversity and Inclusion

Your business could perform 25% better than your competitors if you improve diversity and inclusion in your workforce.

Many businesses still believe Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) to be a low priority topic, a ‘nice to have’ rather than an ‘essential’. However, since a ground-breaking study conducted by McKinsey in 2015 and 2018, and Opportunity Now and Shapiro Consulting’s study in 2011, produced results showing the impact D&I has on financial gain, productivity, motivation and innovation, we can argue that D&I is not a low priority at all, and your competitors are growing more aware of this as well.

The topic of D&I has been discussed, debated, and theorised more and more in recent years, and for good reason. With the UK’s economy now more demanding than ever, with budgets having to be stretched further, corporate social responsibility guidelines being stricter, and the wellbeing, productivity and retention of employees being pivotal to an organisation’s profits, implementing D&I practices has shown to play a significant role in aiding organisations to outperform competitors. What better way to invest than ensuring performance, efficiency and opportunity is maximised through the financial impact of a diverse and inclusive organisation?

Do you want to see an increase of 84% in motivation of your employees? Would you like 81% greater engagement and loyalty? 86% more innovation and creativity? Come and join MPP!

What have others said about this training?

“Having been an inclusion practitioner for over 20 years, it has been an absolute pleasure to share experience and knowledge as one of the course lecturers. Layering theory with the practical application of multiple business as usual and crisis case studies. Watching the students grow and develop their confidence in strategy writing, evidencing financial impact of their function, recognising their own value as a business imperative and enjoying their development is a pleasure.

The interaction between students from all around the world, from private, public and third sectors and how they approach challenges together, and share their knowledge is a unique environment of trust, authenticity and learning. Having worked with many challenging boards, leaders and employees over the years, I would strongly encourage professionals in the subjects of inclusion, diversity, behaviour, culture and sustainability to join this programme for an immersive and practical experience, which students have described as ‘life changing’” – Dawn Hurst, CEO, EA Inclusion

What others say

“The MPP is like neuro gymnastics! In the first module I was challenged, surprised, emotional and exhausted. I didn’t recognise how much this would be about me – and that’s not always a comfortable place for me – but wow, what a change it has made already to my personal impact and application of my personal expertise. Dawn and Craig have this fantastic ability to squeeze every drop of potential out of you, and you quickly realise you’re already applying the learning after day one and benefitting from it. It’s been like having my eyes opened to the possibilities.” - Shelley Caton, Global Director of Diversity & Inclusion, BAM

“Having just completed the first full 2 days of the D&I Master Practitioner Programme, I am excited for our future modules together. Despite being virtual instead of face to face, the content shared in the first module was the perfect blend of informative, challenging and applicable to work. It provided some a-ha moments that will not be forgotten!” – Esther Basra, Group Learning Manager, Tesco
