    27 - On the evolution of Diversity and Inclusion, a conversation with Priya Radia

    A conversation with Priya Radia, D&I Management Consultant at Included

    How was Included created?
    What is “Inclusion 3.0”
    Do we still need to convince leaders that inclusion and diversity are worth achieving, or are we past the “business case for D&I”?
    How do clients start to improve the diversity of the workforce and the inclusiveness of their culture. Are there specific levers, “low-hanging fruits” that leaders can look for?
    How do you measure the diversity and inclusiveness of the workforce?
    Is D&I changing with the rise of remote and hybrid work? If yes, how?
    How do you see D&I practices evolving?

    “The fact that a team has no public disagreement does not mean that they are in good shape and happy and everything is perfect.
