BCG’s proprietary research with 20 of the UK’s largest organisations provides a snapshot of what is working for employees and outlines opportunities for CEOs to drive more impact from their diversity spend. The UK is at a tipping point. If all the energy currently engaged can be harnessed and directed into interventions that truly work, UK companies could create a step-change in gender diversity over the coming years.
