Diversity management is an important aspect of corporate governance. Brand reputation, investor relations and customer satisfaction rest upon the values, behaviours, attitudes and expectations of the board and senior management teams.
In an increasingly competitive and globalised economy, the effective management of diversity is a key business response to the need to grow business, whilst taking into account the need to promote inclusion and support a diverse workforce.
