Global tech company HP currently has 31% women in its leadership teams (industry average is 16%), but announced this week that the new goal is to have 50% women in its leadership roles by 2030. This interview with Lesley Slaton Brown (HP’s Chief Diversity Officer) gives some more insights on how the company is planning to achieve this.


Deloitte just released its global 2021 “Women @ Work” report – and the survey shows that the pandemic is having a significant impact on women’s well-being. Almost 80% of the women responded that their workload has increased, and 51% of the respondents are less optimistic about their career prospects.


The 20th of May was Global Accessibility Awareness Day – focusing on digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities. Around 17% of the global population live with some form of disability, but only a small percentage of companies consider disability in their D&I programs. This article looks at three ways how companies can become more inclusive for people with disabilities.
