It’s well known that a diverse and inclusive workforce is good for business.

With global movements such as Black Lives Matter and #MeToo hitting headlines daily, Boards and Executive Leadership teams need to be more prepared than ever to speak and act on these highly sensitive and important issues.

How Mix can help you.

Research shows that the most critical factor in the success of any diversity and inclusion programme is strong leadership from the top.

Our briefings are full of evidence-based robust recommendations, covering these topics:

The business case for Diversity and Inclusion in your workplace.

Unconscious bias and how might it be affecting your leadership.

The impact of bias in a corporate environment.

What other companies are doing in relation to diversity and inclusion.

Where to focus resources first to have the greatest impact.

How to structure the management and monitoring of a D&I programme.

How to communicate D&I messages to all staff so that they get on board.

Gender balance – why and how (without alienating the male population).

Why some inclusion change programmes fail – pitfalls to avoid.

MIX Diversity - Aspect Capital reception

Client Case Study: Aspect Capital.

Responding to comments from a number of investors, the Executive Committee wanted to have greater insight into the way that Unconscious Bias may have been affecting them on a personal level, a leadership level and across the organisation’s culture and structures.

As a certified Implicitly Unconscious Bias tester, Mix’s CEO Hayley Barnard was able to set up the Executive Committee to undertake unconscious bias psychometric tests in advance of the Board Level Briefing. Hayley reported trends in bias across the committee and suggested steps to mitigate the risk and impact of those biases, as well as leading discussions about Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership during the 90-minute session.

Mix also undertook an external audit of the company’s brand in relation to Diversity and Inclusion and provided recommendations for change.
