The Diversity Faculty Podcast Series

We have produced a series of podcasts where members from the Faculty discuss some of the key issues for businesses relating to diversity and inclusion, including: pipeline, promotion and retention; developing a diversity strategy vs a diversity policy; training – what’s effective and what isn’t; quotas, targets and positive discrimination; the link between diversity and remuneration.

You can listen to our podcasts below.

Spotify Our soundbites are available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Episode 1 - Pipeline, promotion and retention

What do we mean when we talk about pipeline, promotion and retention? How do these issues form part of corporate governance and impact employer brand, employee engagement and become a public reputation issue?

Daniel Danso, Simon Kerr-Davis, Laurie Ollivent, Neha Rao

Episode 2 - Diversity strategy vs diversity policy: Why does it matter?

What is the difference between a diversity strategy and a diversity policy? Why does it matter? How are these perceived internally and externally and why does it matter from a legal perspective?

Neha Rao, Laurie Ollivent

Episode 3 -Training - what's effective? What's ineffective?

Training is only as effective as the people attending it let it be – it’s what happens after the training that really matters. But what makes training effective? What makes it ineffective?

Simon Kerr-Davis, Daniel Danso

Episode 4 - Targets, quotas and positive discrimination

What do we mean when we talk about targets and quotas? How are they different? What should businesses be considering when they look to sign up to targets, quotas or other commitments and pledges? What are the legal risks and can businesses positively discriminate or take positive action to achieve diversity in practice?

Laurie Ollivent, Daniel Danso, Neha Rao, Simon-Kerr Davis

Episode 5 - The link between diversity and remuneration

How might diversity and inclusion metrics be used to determine remuneration and will linking diversity with pay really drive accountability and sustainable change in diversity and inclusion for businesses?

Alexandra Beidas, Laurie Ollivent
