Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace Report

Diversity and inclusion practices in the workforce are increasingly important to ensure that a wide range of knowledge, experiences and innovation is brought to the organization and its decision-making processes.

COVID-19 has shone a light on why diversity is critical for business recovery and resilience. As companies look to adapt to a new way of conducting business post-COVID-19, diversity and inclusion factors need to be on the agenda alongside financial resilience, environmental risks and workforce health.

Continuity in a crisis: exploring reactions to the Covid-19 outbreak among providers of financial services for low-income women.

The impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the global economy will only become fully known in the coming months, as government responses to curtail the spread of the virus feed through into the global economy. However, based on past events related to health, the economy or the environment, we do know that low-income women are among those most adversely affected by economic shocks, whatever their cause.

Coronavirus: “Some are more equal than others” – the diversity implications of coronavirus on employment practices

As the coronavirus pandemic has unfolded, it has become increasingly clear that its impact is not being felt in equal ways across society. This is both in terms of who is most at risk of the disease, but also who is more likely to feel a lasting financial and social impact as a result.

How are mothers and fathers balancing work and family under lockdown? -

The COVID-19 crisis has caused drastic changes to most parents’ work lives and other responsibilities. Millions of adults have lost or are forecast to lose their jobs permanently; many more have stopped work temporarily. Others are newly working from home, while many key workers are experiencing additional pressures and risks in their work. For most parents, school and childcare closures have meant that children are at home, and requiring care, for at least an extra six hours a day.
Although an economic downturn may be inevitable, the effects of COVID-19 and the public health response on the economy as a whole and on specific groups are likely to look very different from those of the economic crises that we are used to. The complete shutdown of certain sectors and the huge increase in households’ care responsibilities are both completely new. And the impacts of these sectoral shutdowns and increases in family responsibilities are likely to look very different for mothers and fathers.
