Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: A People Imperative

14 May 2021


As the world continues to grapple with societal inequities amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic, organizations face growing expectations to demonstrate substantive progress against diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) commitments.

Now more than ever, organizations have an obligation to drive a focused strategy and invest the right resources to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive culture and operational model. Stakeholders – including employees, customers and communities – are calling on organizations to do more, from improving transparency to leading in an increasingly complex environment. With renewed demands to address systematic inequities, companies must both look within and actively participate in the wider society.

United Minds partnered with KRC Research to conduct a survey of 1,527 full-time employees at large companies across three countries: Canada, United States, and United Kingdom. This survey provides robust benchmarking data for the overall workforce across each of the three countries, as well as industry-level benchmarks for the Technology, Healthcare, and Financial Services sectors. The final sample was weighted within each country to be demographically representative of the working population.
