At the recent Life Sciences Accounting & Reporting virtual event, a panel discussed how diversity efforts have expanded beyond an organization’s four walls to encompass the entire ecosystem and to include social justice.

The panel - titled Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Beyond the Four Walls of an Organization - looked at how organizations are going beyond just thinking or talking about DE&I, and are taking action, whilst individuals can play a key role in driving change through their talent and time.

They also looked at how there has been a change in the focus of D&I. Initially, the focus was convincing corporate leaders, who were not terribly diverse, of the business case for diversity. This case is now well established - there is a clear correlation between an organization’s diversity and its performance.
