Yet progress has been slow. The 346 companies in our 2015 research (mostly based in
the US and UK) have increased average gender representation on their executive teams only

Since Why Diversity Matters was published in 2015, we have seen growing awareness of the
business case for inclusion and diversity (I&D). Widely cited, the report has influenced I&D
policy-setting and transformation efforts by corporations, the public sector, and third-sector
organisations worldwide. While social justice, legal compliance, or maintaining industry standard
employee environment protocols is typically the initial impetus behind these efforts,

as a key enabler of growth.
