The Head, Diversity and Inclusion of A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, Rachel Osikoya, said the priority attention accorded the concept of diversity and inclusion has been key to driving innovation at the multinational group.

Osikoya, who was in Lagos recently for a women leadership development programme, said diversity is about understanding and managing differences at the workplace.

She said, “At Maersk we are focusing specifically on diversity in terms of gender, nationality and age. Generational diversity is something a lot of companies are looking at now. It is also about how you think, how you solve problems, what difference you bring to the organization.
