Ian Clarke is Founder of award-winning culture transformers Delight Consulting and the author of 'Project Speak Up' - a global D&I report and change campaign that sent ripples across the global financial sector, broke 5 CSR world records and changed the perception of people and conduct risk forever.
A multi-award winning philanthropist, rights campaigner and D&I consultant, Ian is a leading authority on human uniqueness and the value of difference.
Racially non-binary, queer, disabled and 37, Ian’s innate diversity is helping him build bridges in an age division. In this episode, Ian recounts some deeply personal lessons from a childhood often experienced as an outsider, sometimes even an imposter. Now outside of banking, Ian’s on a self-declared mission to “ensure humanity can reach its full potential”
Here he explains how meaningful change towards more diverse workforces will be well worth the effort. Increased productivity, new ideas and perspectives, improved marketability, strategic optimisation, and an ability to attract and retain legitimate top talent are just a few of the benefits awaiting brave firms open to change. Because it’s commercial, not just correct.
