Episode tip

"Where an organization...can reap the benefits of having diverse people around the table if they have that inclusive culture...Those people that are feeling different and may not be the majority of the people around the table or think differently than the majority of the people around the table, they feel like their difference is valued so they share it and they're bringing their authentic self to work which means they are able to act at 100 per cent capacity. " - Carolyn Lawrence, gender leader, inclusion & diversity at Deloitte
