A recent piece of research found that companies whose boards were made up of at least a third by women are 42 per cent more profitable. Diversity in the work place is not only a healthy, laudable corporate ideal to embrace, it is also profitable. The 30 Percent Club, founded by Newton Investment Management's CEO Helena Morrissey, has a strapline under its tree logo that I think is particularly important: "Growth through diversity". It is this message - growth through diversity - that is so important. Simply put, companies are more likely to thrive with a diverse workforce.

Today, New Jersey became the latest state to allow same-sex marriage. Also today, a new stock index like the DOW Jones or the S&P launches, but this one tracks the stocks of companies that are friendly to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues. It's called the LGBT Equality Index, and was created by Credit Suisse --which is also starting a portfolio for investors who want to put their money behind LGBT-friendly companies.

It is nice to see some information on what is really being done.  Does your organisation do any of this?

Mona Dutta's curator insight, June 4, 2014 10:02 AM

McKinsey & Company undertook this research to understand how women contribute to the US economy; how their work benefits individual corporations; what prevents women from making greater contributions to their companies; and what approaches can help companies unlock the full potential of women. Plugging the leaks in the talent pipeline is clearly a top priority and there are opportunities at every transition point in the pipeline. But we believe companies have a promising opportunity to capture by focusing on the transition from mid-level manager to senior management (typically the vice president role). If companies could raise the number of middle management women who make it to the next level by 25%, it would significantly alter the shape of the pipeline. Advancing more women into these positions would in time help companies rebalance their executive committees, which in turn increases the likelihood of sustaining gender diversity at every level to the very top.
