Disrupting diversity and inclusion: The promise of behavioural design

  • Canada Image

Oct 30, 2019

On October 30, 2019, the Conference Board of Canada released an article on how we need to recognize workplace diversity and inclusion for what it is: a wicked problem. It is difficult to solve, deeply interconnected with other complex social issues, and wrought with systemic and individual biases.

The glacial progress indicates that our current approaches are not working. In Canada, less than one-fifth of all leadership roles are held by women. And women’s representation on company boards is also still low, changing at 1–2 per cent every year—not fast enough to reach long-term targets. Other under-represented groups’ experiences can be even worse, from consistently lower wages for immigrant workers to a dismal employment rate for people with disabilities.

Review the full article on the Conference Board of Canada's website.
