The New Way of Talking about D&I

Times have changed. Should it be Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) or Inclusion and Diversity? While an increasing number of studies point to diversity having a positive impact on business performance, it needs to be coupled with inclusion if financial services companies want to see cultural and societal change. And in a world where our customers have changed dramatically over the last few decades, are we doing enough to understand them? Do we know what they think and feel about our brand, our products? Are we looking outside-in? By finding meaningful insights, and developing our empathy and ability to listen, we start to build an inclusive future where everyone can thrive.

Simply being exposed to diversity can change the way we think. Study after study has proven that diversity is needed to create teams capable of genuine innovation and modernisation, as it amplifies creativity and encourages imagination and new ideas. Diversity means much more than equal opportunities, going much further than gender, ethnicity or social equality. Leaders need to encourage diversity of thinking and be willing to have entrenched viewpoints challenged. And diversity can only be of benefit if the workforce is empowered to express its diversity; otherwise, companies may end up with teams who look different from each other, but think the same. So diversity is necessary but not sufficient; being truly inclusive and empowering will ensure the real benefits of diversity are realised.

In an ever-changing world, where gender equality is of the utmost importance both from a male and female perspective, the importance of tackling key challenges through a shared perspective of responsibility is critical to achieving equality. In this session, Asif Sadiq will first prove that we need to understand the challenges that women face and what men can do to address these. He will explore barriers that men face in the world today, such as gender stereotypes that not only result in men being at a disadvantage but further embed stereotypes for women. He will then show that to address both gender challenges, a joint up approach needs to be adapted, that helps support gender equality for women while addressing the male stereotypes.

Within the workplace, there is a perception that women are more risk-averse than their male counterparts.  How can we support females in seizing more opportunities by taking a balanced approach to risk?  Whether in identifying and applying for stretch assignments and roles, or in being more assertive around personal development, taking calculated risks can build careers and lead to greater organisational productivity.  Here, MJ Deverdun reflects on a diverse career, with Lawrence Shaw, Chief Administrative Office of the Corporate Investment Bank. Together they will explore the challenges and pivotal events over MJ’s career, that have seen her move from Consulting at PricewaterhouseCoopers to Deutsche Bank, where she has held a number of rules including Global Head of Credit Risk Operations, Portfolio Risk Manager for CB&S and now Global Fixed Income and Currency COO. They will discuss candidly how an appetite for taking controlled risks can drive a successful career.

The City is experiencing considerable positive change and is finally seeking to tackle issues such as gender equality; there are pioneering men and women creating new ways of working and thinking.

Melanie Richards, Deputy Chair of KPMG UK, will give an honest and frank perspective on advancing diversity in the workplace and how we all need to challenge ourselves to do something different.

Can we take equality from an ideal into a reality across our workplaces and society? Melanie will provide both big-picture perspectives and practical tips on what we can all do to be more inclusive in the way in which we work and lead. This isn’t just a question of the difference between male and female leaders anymore. There is a need for different styles of leadership more broadly. A shift away from the notion of the heroic leader to something more collaborative, more inclusive and more thoughtful which will also make us better equipped to deal with the global challenges we face.

Some of the most successful brands of today are those that put the customer at the centre of all their decisions. We know from recent research that building an inclusive and diverse business can ultimately have as positive an impact on your customers as it does your employees in how they engage with, and experience, your brand. In this session, we will be closing the day out by reflecting on the impact that fostering an inclusive environment can have for everyone who contributes to your business success and we uncover how self-esteem can play an important role for brands looking to reach a wider audience. Our research has found that financial institutions in the UK alone have a £133 billion opportunity in re-thinking how they engage their female customers. However, while the business case is clear, how to realise this opportunity can be challenging for financial services brands. We will touch on how the answer calls for a more nuanced approach that resonates with everyone, not just females, and reflects the reality of our society to engage with gender in a way that is both progressive and authentic - for your employees and for your customers.

So is it all downhill from here for the workers? The answer is a lot more subtle than yes or no. Technology can enhance and replace in equal measures.

Since women make up 50% of the population, the “Women first” strategy might seem to make sense for senior leaders who prioritise D&I initiatives based on pure numbers of people impacted. But the numbers-driven approach to D&I is just one part of the equation. While many great D&I initiatives do start with small steps, asking people with multiple identities of marginalisation to “wait their turn,” contributes to further inequality. So, all of our efforts must be intersectional, and deliberately focus on those on the fringes. What is intersectionality? Why should D&I initiatives go further?

Since women make up 50% of the population, the “Women first” strategy might seem to make sense for senior leaders who prioritise D&I initiatives based on pure numbers of people impacted. But the numbers-driven approach to D&I is just one part of the equation. While many great D&I initiatives do start with small steps, asking people with multiple identities of marginalisation to “wait their turn,” contributes to further inequality.

That's where the concept of allyship comes in. Allyship is a way for men who feel powerless and/or part of the problem to step up and help women challenge discrimination at work. Allyship allows them to speak up and call out gender biased interactions when they witness them, and support the women who are already trying to challenge a broken system.

Flexible working - its benefits are clear. For businesses, it helps to attract and retain talented working parents. As a society, it gets us closer to gender equality by counteracting the tangible motherhood penalty. Yet, while mothers are the group that would most benefit from flexible working arrangements right now, it would be a mistake to see this as only a mother’s matter. Indeed, doing so would miss the point – and the full business benefits – of flexibility. How can we reap the benefits of an engaged, productive workforce? What policies need to be put in place?

Women have been under-represented in private equity and venture capital but there are encouraging signs that things are changing. Although the numbers have a long way to go, there are some tremendously successful, ambitious and innovative women taking the private equity and venture capital industry by storm. Will this help contribute towards raising awareness of the lack of diversity in the industry? Surely it will offer young women a growing band of female role models to aspire toward, and assist firms and investors who want to do something more about it.
