Quota is Not the Key, Culture Is.

Jul 15, 2022

While studies show that a diverse and inclusive workforce provides a healthier working environment, better risk management, and more robust performance, diversity and inclusiveness has a long way to go to solidify its place in workplace culture. Simply establishing quotas is not enough to make real and true changes in industry culture. Companies need to build a culture that is purposefully and intentionally inclusive while making sure there are no biases in the process – from the recruitment, retainment, and throughout the developmental stages. Whether a legacy corporation or start up entity, the decision to become a diverse and inclusive workplace should be a choice that is purposely and deliberately established and measured.

Join Audrey Mothupi, CEO of Systemic Logic Group, in a round table discussion with an established panel of guests including Dr. Herbert Wigwe (Access Corporation), Ladi Delan (Moove), Caroline Emch (American Express), and Maha El Dimachki (FCA) on the topic Quota is not the key, culture is. Representing a range of companies from long established to start-up, these respected individuals cover topics relating to diversity and inclusion from their perspectives. The panelists tackle tough questions: How does a company establish and/or further develop diversity and inclusion? Why is diversity and inclusion important to creating a healthy workplace environment? How does diversity and inclusion help the overall success of companies and their employees? What can a corporation do to make meaningful and long lasting changes as a natural occurrence rather than a forced obligation? Tune in and learn more!
