The business of diversity
The state of diversity, equity and inclusion in broadcast and media technology, and why it matters.
Is diversity good for business? In this essential report, Rise and Caretta Research delve into the relationship between diversity and business outcomes. The findings conclusively reveal that those embracing diversity enjoy numerous advantages over their less diverse counterparts, including increased revenue-per-employee, higher staff retention, amplified creativity, and superior problem-solving capabilities.
However, there is work to be done as the research finds that women are significantly underrepresented across technical functions and in senior leadership with only 12% of media technology CEOs being women. Furthermore, there are persistent experiences of bias and harassment in professional spaces.
With the clear benefits associated with diversity, equity and inclusion, this report demonstrates the business imperative of investing in a clear DEI strategy and how those who do will gain a competitive advantage.
