WEF: Derfor er diversitet vigtigt i organisationer

I en ny artikel har World Economic Forum samlet ledelseserfaringer fra flere entreprenører, der alle slår fast, at det er vigtigt med diversitet i organisations.

Hovedbudskaberne er:

  • Mangfoldighed fører til kreativitet og robusthed, men det kan være udfordrende at implementere det i virksomheder.
  • Gennem mangfoldighed kan overvejelser og ukonventionelle løsninger findes.

Her er et uddrag af artiklen:

Diversity leads to richer ideas and solutions

Kasim Alfalahi (CEO, Avanci)

Our business is truly global, we work with both Fortune 100 companies and very small businesses, in dozens of countries around the world and across diverse cultures and organizational setups. Throughout my career, I’ve worked in and led a variety of teams. My experience has been that the more diverse the team, the richer the ideas and the solutions which can be created – I’ve seen firsthand that different cultures may view the same issue from a different perspective.

Most of us in Avanci had worked for multinational businesses before and learned the value of being more closely aligned with our customers. So, when we founded Avanci, we wanted to reflect more closely the diverse world in which we operate. Though it would perhaps have been easier just to work from a single location, instead we looked to be physically closer to our counterparts. We now work across five different offices, one in the US, one in Europe and three in Asia.

We need expertise of different cultures, languages and geographies

Amos Haggiag (CEO and Cofounder, Optibus)

Every city and region struggle with unique industry challenges. Understanding local problems, developing localized and innovative solutions, and breaking into new markets requires a diverse team with expertise in and knowledge of different cultures, languages, and geographies.

Optibus works with transportation providers in over 500 cities across twenty four countries, so team diversity is key to our understanding and tackling of local transportation issues worldwide. When we looked at public transportation in rapidly urbanizing areas of Africa, Latin America, and India – places that are poised to be the cities of the future – we detected a huge opportunity for using AI and data driven technology to create efficient, equitable, and sustainable mobility systems from the beginning of their development. Of course, given the diversity of these regions, we knew we could only identify and resolve local problems with local expertise, starting with the optimization of South Africa’s minibus taxi industry.

To fight global challenges, we need diversity in all its forms

Bhakti Vithalani (Founder and CEO, BigSpring)

Our mission at BigSpring is to create equality by closing the skills gap. This is a truly global challenge, which is why diversity in all its forms is the core value of our organization. The skills gap impacts everyone, so we need BigSpring as a company to represent the people we’re here to serve – everyone. Our clients and learners can be anywhere in the world, so our teams mirror this geographic diversity. We have team members in Singapore, India, Argentina and the US, speaking over a dozen languages. Working across the globe, cultural diversity at BigSpring is the key to not just helping us understand how skilling can improve people’s lives but empathise and relate to the diverse populations we’re serving. We’re a female founded company where women represent the majority of our leadership team.

My ‘Aha’ moment is something that happens daily. No matter who I’m speaking to, where they’re located or what their background is, I’ve found that there is someone on the team at BigSpring that understands where they are coming from. Understanding any challenge starts with understanding the people it impacts. The more we have in common, the more we understand each other.
