D&I Weekly News Round Up: Inclusion, Gender Equality and more
Welcome to the latest edition of our Diversity & Inclusion News Round-Up. Today we are talking about a new D&I study, the gender pay gap, positive representation in a video game and why Mumbai is installing new traffic signage. Stay safe everyone!
We know about the gender pay gap – on average, women earn less base pay than men. But according to new research, there is also a significant difference when we look at equity-based pay.
Interesting! Lenovo and Intel partnered on research and just published the first chapter of “Diversity and Inclusion in the Global Workplace”, a study exploring how people view D&I in their personal and professional lives.
Animal Crossing (Nintendo) is currently one of the most popular video games in the world. Gillette Venus (a P&G brand) has now partnered with Nintendo and is offering “skinclusive” designs to help with positive representation. Players can not only choose from additional body types and skin tones, they can also add pigmentation, freckles, prothesis and other characteristics to their avatars. Have a look here.
It sounds like a small thing – but it’s a very powerful signal. In India, most of the people on the streets are men. Mumbai has now installed female figures on traffic lights to promote gender equality.
