Workplace equity is
impossible

Despite good intentions and widespread investments in building more diverse and equitable organizations, progress is moving at a glacial pace. According to our research, women still earn less than men. In 2020, their gross hourly earnings were on average 13% below those of men in the European Union. Also in the UK, the ethnicity pay gap has been larger for men than women from 2012 to 2019.1

What's going wrong? Resources and data are limited and many DE&I strategies are overly focused on bringing in diverse talent, but failing to promote or retain them (a problem known as the "leaky bucket"). You need a way to focus your efforts on your biggest areas of impact — to sustainably increase diversity, reliably close pay and opportunity gaps, and build confidence with employees and investors alike.

That's why it's time to shift your focus away from promises to progress — using workplace equity as your guide.
