Why it matters

The UK is consistently ranked as one of the least socially mobile nations among its international peers. This must change. Everyone in the UK – irrespective of their background, age, gender, sexuality, race and disability – should have the opportunities they need to progress. There is strong evidence that diverse organisations exhibit greater growth and innovation, and make better business choices.


What can business and society gain from a changing workforce?

Greater racial diversity at all levels of business

Accelerate progress by increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of Boards and senior leadership teams.

Widen talent pools with new and upskilled workers

By investing in training, businesses will help a new generation into the workforce and help existing workers to reskill and retrain.

Expand diversity with hybrid working

New remote, hybrid and flexible working patterns will encourage maximum participation in the workforce from the broadest possible range of backgrounds.
