It was an honour to provide the Foreword for this document:

“The ongoing discussion about diversity—and, more broadly, about the importance of environmental, social, and governance performance—plays to a growing sense that the business world should be less distant from the population as a whole and that there is a growing need to be energized by a sense of fairness. A business world that more fully reflects its community and customers is more likely to be seen as fair and trusted.”
