Diversity is a hot topic of conversation in UK business, but in some ways I question its sudden popularity and relevance. To my mind, creating a supportive working culture of which a diverse workforce is one measure, is a no-brainer. It is not solely about being inclusive, or just politically correct; it's simply that the more diverse your workforce is, the better your business will be. Better in terms of output, results and staff well-being.
In the same decade that we moan of 'political correctness gone mad' and 'positive discrimination', why are talented members of minority groups still hugely underrepresented on our televisions, radios and in our films? I am tired of being the only woman in an interview lineup, simply because the job had the word 'technician' in the title.
