What does my organisation need to do to successfully incorporate a diversity strategy?

Incorporating a successful diversity strategy into your organisation is a significant endeavour that often requires the guidance and expertise of a specialised diversity consultant.

A diversity consultant can assist your organisation in navigating the complexities of diversity and inclusion, ensuring that your strategy is not only well-structured but also aligned with your specific goals and values.

What you need for a successful diversity strategy:

  • Clear and measurable objectives
  • Leadership commitment to the strategy and active involvement in it’s implementation
  • Assessment of your current diversity landscape and benchmarking
  • Policies that value diversity throughout the employee lifecycle through attraction, recruitment, retention and promotion
  • Allocation of resources including budget, personnel, time and resources
  • Education for employees at all levels
  • Clear accountability for goals
  • Feedback and continuous improvement
  • Legal compliance
  • Integration of diversity metrics with operational business goals
  • Long term commitment

By combining these factors, a well-crafted diversity strategy can create a workplace culture that values and embraces diversity, fosters innovation, enhances employee satisfaction, and drives better business outcomes.


Key focuses of diversity strategy for organisations:

  • Understanding what diversity is and why it is important at a team and organisational level.
  • Building leadership who value diversity.
  • Creating opportunities for diverse perspectives to inform and respectfully challenge decision making.
  • Pinpointing sources of bias and discrimination throughout the employee lifecycle.
  • Developing intersectionally informed interventions.
  • Encouraging cross-cultural competence and understanding among employees.
  • Establishing key performance indicators to measure the impact of your diversity strategy.
