Why organisations must get the balance right

A reputation of inclusiveness and fairness makes it easier to recruit and retain the best staff.

Your people are generally happier, more productive and absences are reduced. In addition, it builds social capital with stakeholders and clients. It is also the right thing to do.

But, in building diversity, there is a knotty issue: when the rights of one group impinge on the rights of one or more other groups, as in the ever-increasing conflict around access to single-sex spaces. A dispute that is principally between transwomen and women.

In large part, the contention was created by incorrect guidance from official sources.

In these increasingly litigious times, it is paramount that your organisation is able to safely navigate any arising conflict in order to protect your operations and reputation.
