Why diversity and inclusion are more important than ever during the COVID-19 crisis
Research shows that teams that are diverse are better at solving complex problems. Yet, even today, many companies still have very homogenous leadership teams (one gender, one culture/nationality, one background). Now, companies that have built balanced teams across their business and functions—not just a few women in functional roles such as HR or communications, or a few people of different cultural backgrounds representing global markets—are those that will be able to draw on the business benefits that balance brings to the table.
What research findings are unclear, but valid point made about homogeneous leadership teams being prevelant.
