9 January 2017 – PwC launches a new tool to help companies around the world measure the maturity of their D&I programmes. By taking an online survey – available here – they can compare their programme to others in their industry and region, and analyse their responses to understand how mature the components of their D&I programme are: Emerging, Basic, Progressing or Differentiated.
Sharmila Karve, PwC’s newly appointed Global Diversity and Inclusion Leader, says:

“Diversity is all about including & involving and thus invigorating the workplace. This helps drive Innovation.  Decades of research have shown that diversity is good for business.  Many organisations are focusing on creating a more inclusive work environment – but these efforts aren’t always successful. Our new online tool will help organistions find out why and what they can do to improve their D&I programmes.”
