• “Diversity and inclusion cannot simply be left to politicians and protestors: as leaders, each of us has the power to do things differently. From such privileged positions, each of us must have the courage to rewire meritocracy so that we genuinely reward talent. Doing so won’t just serve what is right; it will also build what is profitable.”

The impact of the Covid crisis and the Black Lives Matter movements have acted as an x-ray on our societies, exposing deep economic and social injustices. Business leaders and staff across the world are questioning their practices: If we are genuinely recruiting on merit, why do so many workers at the top still look and sound the same? How do we compete in a global marketplace for diverse new customers? How can we make our commitment to diversity and inclusion more than just a soundbite? Can social justice also be a business opportunity?

This report from Global Future seeks to answer these questions. Drawing on a wide range of psychological training and business experience, it outlines five principles for deepening meritocracy in the workplace. Each one is illustrated with practical case studies from leaders living these values every day, from the CEO of the Body Shop to leaders at McKinsey, Intertek and Network Rail. As Lord Parker outlines in his foreword, each principle is also accompanied by tangible actions that can be taken by business leaders and organisations to serve both social justice and good business sense. We hope you enjoy it and we welcome your feedback.
