Diversity & Performance – Leveraging Difference to Power the Bottom Line

Diversity is more than a “people” thing. There is increasing evidence and data linking diversity to financial performance. A McKinsey study links racial and ethnic diversity to improved financial returns – as much as 35% above national industry medians. A Deloitte study showed that diverse companies had higher cash flow per employee. However, the connection between diversity, inclusion and performance still feels elusive.
This may be because the diversity conversation tends to focus on EEOC protected groups (i.e., race, gender and gender identity, disability, etc.)., and most diversity training is around unconscious bias education or how navigate uncomfortable conversations. Yes, these topics are important, especially given recent headlines and societal shifts around racial equality and justice. But what if we zoomed out and look more diversity more broadly? Join me for a conversation about the impact of difference on teams, leaders and organizations. We will explore how diversity impacts group dynamics and team culture, and draw the connection between leadership intention, firm culture and organizational performance.


At the end of this session, attendees will reognize how diversity impacts group dynamics as it relates to firm culture and organizational performance.


• Define, differentiate and clarify "D&I" terminology • Discuss impacts of unconscious bias on diversity & inclusion efforts • Explore the implications of diversity on organizations, groups and teams
