The Business Case for Diversity: Jane Farrell on Radio 4

The Business Case for Diversity: Jane Farrell on Radio 4


Is there a business case for having a diverse workforce? An emphatic yes.


Regular Radio 4 listeners will have heard a familiar voice on The Bottom Line last night. Jane Farrell, CEO and co-founder of EW Group (aka Equality Works) was on hand to share her thoughts on the business case for having a diverse workforce.

Jane was joined on the programme by Baroness Ruby McGregor-Smith, the former Chief Executive of MITIE and author of the government-commissioned review Race in the Workplace, and Scott Page, author of The Diversity Bonus and Professor of Complex Systems, Political Science, and Economics at the University of Michigan.

Up for discussion: the gender pay gap, ‘that’ Google memo, how to transform the talent pipeline, diversity data monitoring, and the competitive advantages of inclusive culture.

You can listen again to the broadcast online via BBC iPlayer Radio.
