Time For Change
Research and evidence show that diverse organisations do better. Diversity is a fundamental requirement for businesses to thrive and meet future demand. It is time for change. Diversity is not just a concern for HR professionals or those in the minority. Everyone has a responsibility to be informed, understand the diversity landscape and to take action.

About The Change Canvas
For Diversity and Inclusion
The world is waking up to the fact that we have a talent shortfall and a lack of diversity in our businesses. We need to rethink the way we attract, develop and retain talent and widen the net to give more people an opportunity to thrive and contribute. Companies that offer an inclusive environment for a diverse mix of employees stand to innovate, achieve greater financial performance and outperform the competition.
We need to change the script
The same actions will results in the same outcomes. Organisations need to take intentional action in order to drive change. This is why www.diversily.com has created The Change Canvas. It helps spark the right conversations to build inclusivity into our thinking and provides a common framework to move forward together.
Our mission is to drive positive change and The Change Canvas is a vehicle to encourage a collective movement of change. It is an open tool that we want as many organisations to benefit from as possible. We encourage businesses to provide feedback so we can continue to evolve the canvas and share the collective experiences. We encourage partners to build the canvas into their offerings such as consultancy, workshops or accelerator programmes. Let's celebrate our successes and move forward, faster together.
