Did you know that a team consisting of men and women of different ages and cultures makes better decisions than a homogeneous team in 87% of the cases? So diversity and inclusion are definitely worth an investment.
But how do you get started? What does an inclusive work culture mean? And can you, as an individual, make a contribution? These are all important questions we want to answer for you. On the basis of four themes, we explain a number of crucial issues and provide you with concrete tools so that you too can play a part in more #InclusionInFinance and get started yourself.Ready to make a difference?
Everyone has (unconscious) prejudices and these have an impact on your decisions. Our brain has evolved to be able to make quick choices. And that’s efficient, especially when you have to process a lot of information and make complex decisions. It’s good to think more often about the way you think. If not, you risk overlooking talent, quality and originality.
Do you want to get rid of your own bias?
An inclusive work culture pays off. Not only because diverse teams make better decisions, but also because they produce a wealth of ideas, opinions and solutions. However, it's not just a matter of recruiting diverse talent, but also of keeping it.
Time for more inclusion in your work environment?
In diversity lies knowledge and expertise. No #InclusionInFinance without inclusive panels. That means bringing together people of different genders, ages and origins.

Inclusion is everyone's responsibility, but someone has to set a good example. As a manager, you’re faced with the challenge of recognising all the talent in your team and getting that talent to work together in a pleasant atmosphere. Definitely not easy. But the results are worth it!
