to do. You need to de-bias the systems that run the organisation, such as recruitment, pay, procurement, talent management and marketing. And you need to lead inclusively. Whilst both are important, leadership is the cornerstone, without which all the diversity initiatives in the world will be in vain.
we often think about systems and processes. We think about recruitment policies, or how we do performance evaluations, or flexible working arrangements.

They help to level the playing field and reduce the risk that we are systematically favouring or penalising any particular group.
