About Diversity by Design
Diversity by Design’s approach is based on how to equip businesses with the right combination of talent to thrive. Their approach to diversity does not start from the arithmetic of identity (“add more women and stir”), but rather with the strategic challenges that organisations, in this case building societies specifically, face.
Currently working with the Boards of two of the largest insurers and one of the top four supermarkets and a range of Universities, amongst others, their approach of recruiting, retaining and recognising for difference (RfD) has had the dual effect of getting the best person for the job by building the best teams and at the same time increasing diversity.
