Leaders need clarity on what works to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Global Parity Alliance's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Lighthouses 2023 Report reveals success factors that have emerged, as well as what effective DEI impact can look like through compelling case studies.

The Global Parity Alliance, a group developed in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, has identified five success factors common across the DEI initiatives that yielded the most significant, scalable, quantifiable, and sustained impact for underrepresented groups.

To understand what these factors are, and actions that contribute to DEI progress, the FSC invites members to join us for a webinar discussion with the authors of the report - moderated by FSC Board Director, Jen Driscoll:

  • Kweilin Ellingrud, Global Institute Director and Senior Partner, McKinsey & Company (joining from Minneapolis)
  • Ishaa Sandhu, Engagement Manager, McKinsey & Company (joining from London)
  • Jen Driscoll, FSC Board Director and CEO of AllianceBernstein (AB) Australia

This is a great opportunity to hear the key insights and the DEI initiatives that can be actioned within your organisation.
