Research shows growing importance of diversity and inclusion post-pandemic
26 November 2020
Independent research carried out by Mourant in June 2020 among those with an organisation-wide remit for D&I, revealed that for many corporates and professional services firms, COVID-19 has been far from a distraction when it comes to evolving and implementing their own inclusion strategy, and some focus areas, like neurodiversity, have seen an increase in priority.
The patterns, identified through the research, provide a unique insight into the strength of feeling placed on the importance of D&I within the investment funds industry and particularly the challenges, and subsequent solutions, for those operating internationally, across onshore and offshore IFCs going forward.

Our Mourant Inclusion Partners Danielle Roman, Dan Birtwistle and Ramesh Maharaj also discuss the research in our recent Global Perspectives blog and podcast, where they share their point of view of how simply saying 'we must be more inclusive' is never going to be enough again.
At Mourant, inclusion is a key business priority for us and we’re committed to fostering an inclusive community. We recognise that we’re on a journey and that during these unprecedented and challenging times, it's even more important that inclusion remains high on our collective agendas.
If you'd like to speak to us about these findings, or if you're interested in having an open conversation about driving cultures of inclusivity and respect in the workplace, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
