“Supporting and Nurturing Diverse Talent”
Efforts invested in ensuring the attraction of diverse talent can be undermined if insufficient attention is given to nurturing and empowering that diverse talent once it walks through the door.  Too often we hear stories of how, once hired, diverse talent is expected to conform to organisational norms, eroding any benefit that their potential diversity of experiences or perspectives might bring.  How then, can companies, actively and intentionally encourage a culture of allyship that can create an environment where diverse talent can thrive?
