We enable clients to understand their current Diversity & Inclusión activity and impact using diagnostic assessment and data analytics, and help them achieve their D&I ambitions through sustainable strategies and improved leadership capability.

D&I Market Survey

A Diversity & Inclusion survey of the Irish market

EY conducted the first overarching survey evaluating the position of Diversity & Inclusion specifically in the Irish market.

The survey takes a holistic view of Diversity & Inclusion in Irish business, considers the ‘state of the nation’ and reports on how much D&I progress organisations in Ireland are making and how far we still have to travel. We also gauge the understanding of Diversity & Inclusion as a business imperative and route to competitive advantage, looking at:

  • Business strategy and governance
  • Leadership
  • Data and metrics
  • Resourcing and responsibility.

The survey reveals an overwhelming consensus that promoting Diversity & Inclusion is vital to accelerating business performance. However, despite good intentions – and while over half of respondents have experienced a change in diversity profile in the last five years – actual work practices or progress do not reflect this.
