DEI in times of economic downturn

Webinar with the ESCP Business School

Companies and businesses continue to face challenges in the shape of international conflicts, energy crisis and rising inflation. This global, economic downturn has forced businessese to reassess their situation and save costs to avoid, in the best case, layoffs. In doing so, management frequently looks to DEI efforts for their contribution to a company’s success and, as a result, often cut down on personal development training or indeed, challenge the DEI work. Behind such a reasoning is the misleading idea that diversity automatically equals profitability, the simple business case for DEI.

Such a move undermines the commitment of a company to DEI at the risk of stopping to hire and retain a diverse workforce. To reap the benefits of diversity in a company requires considerable planning and effort in the mid- to long-term.

Together with ESCP Business School we cordially invite you to:
