Diversity breakfast series – diversity disclosure
Diversity disclosure is an important statement of intent – a recognition that the capital markets industry is starting from a difficult position on diversity but wants to change, and is capable of change. It could be an important step towards improving diversity in European capital markets, which in turn could play an important role in driving cultural change across the industry.
This discussion will focus on on the main findings of our recent report on diversity disclosure that analysed what the biggest companies and organisations across the financial markets tell us about their approach to diversity on more than 50 criteria.
The data also shows greater diversity disclosure is linked to increased diversity – we found a positive correlation between disclosure and female representation on boards, which is an example of a desirable diversity outcome. Companies disclose most on gender, followed by ethnicity and then disability.
