Much talk, little action. These words sum up the growing interest in diversity and inclusion in corporate statements, combined with companies’ failure in improving fairness in their governance and structures. As evidenced by statistics, only 15% of companies in Europe treat diversity and inclusion as business and organizational issues. But civil society’s pressing demand towards institutions to better represent it in the decisions that collectively and individually impact citizens, cannot be overlooked. Neither by governments nor by the private sector, which should focus on the proven benefits of diversity and collective intelligence on performance to move forward.
