Putting behavioural science into practice

Making advances in diversity is key to an organization's growth and success. However, most efforts to increase diversity and inclusion fail, and some even end up doing more harm than good. That's why we're taking an innovative approach.

By capitalizing on insights from the behavioural sciences, we plan on disrupting the increasingly ineffective interventions for diversity and inclusion in order to develop more sustainable solutions backed by the latest scientific breakthroughs and insights.
