Today I am joined by Inclusivity Expert, Diversity & Inclusion Architect and Author, Toby Mildon.

Toby is a diversity thought leader and author of "Inclusive Growth: Future-proof your business by creating a diverse workplace" and he has helped some of the UK's largest companies, including the BBC, Deloitte, Sony, and HarperCollins.

Toby loves talking about diversity and inclusion - and that’s exactly what he does in his own podcast show, ‘The Inclusive Growth Show’. 

Toby discusses the key insights from his book, Inclusive Growth, and provides a practical framework for delivering a sustainable, diverse and inclusive workplace that allows organisations to grow. 

We also discuss how companies can strategically align diversity and inclusion to organisational growth, change the culture, and implement a sustainable inclusivity infrastructure.

Key learnings:

  • Role of HR: Human resources should act as a catalyst for growth by nurturing talent and fostering an environment where every individual feels valued.
  • Commitment from Leadership: True commitment involves integrating DEI values into the core operations and strategies, ensuring systemic changes support diverse talents and inclusive practices.
  • Importance of Inclusive Growth: Companies that cultivate such cultures experience enhanced innovation, employee engagement, and customer satisfaction, contributing to overall success.
  • The Value of Diversity: Showing how diverse perspectives contribute to better decision-making, creativity, and problem-solving capabilities.
  • Sustainable and Diverse Workplaces: This involves designing inclusivity infrastructures that support equitable participation and accommodate diverse needs.
  • Ethical and Financial Benefits of D&I: From improving employee retention to fostering innovation and profitability, the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace are manifold.
