Delivering through Diversity builds upon McKinsey and Co’s 2015 report Why Diversity Matters, which raised awareness of the business case for inclusion and diversity. The report influenced policy-setting and transformation efforts by corporations, the public sector and NGOs worldwide. Many successful companies regard inclusion and diversity as a source of competitive advantage and a key enabler of growth. Yet progress has been slow, with minimal Increases in gender representation on executive teams.
Delivering through Diversity tackles the business case and provides a perspective on how to take action to impact growth and business performance. It reaffirms the global relevance of the correlation between diversity in leadership and financial outperformance, based on over 1,000 companies across 12 countries.
